A big trouble a lot of parents have is finding a bat for their young one. You don’t want one that is too heavy, or your little guy or gal won’t be able to heft it up let alone make contact with the ball. With all the brands, league regulations, weights, lengths, it can all get a little confusing. We found a great site called Dugout Debate that does a good job helping people with the bat selection process. You’ll know how to pick out the right size of bat and which bat to select based on the age group your child falls into.
Don’t waste your time sifting through a bat retailer only to buy an expensive bat that isn’t the best for your kid. You want something that’s going to last at least a couple years and really perform well. Getting a bat that is too heavy or too long can make or break a kid’s batting season and love for the sport. That’s why we always make recommendations to do your research and select the bat carefully. You may even want to go to a bat shop and have your kid try a few sizes and then buy their favorite (and the one that matches the specifications they need) on a website online where you can usually get a better price.
