Choosing a bat, particularly the right bat, is a very important part of the baseball process. So, what goes in to selecting the perfect bat? Obviously, the bat you choose should feel perfect in your hands.
There are three things from a technical side that need to be considered before making the investment in your bat. This is probably the most important part of the decision process. Swinging a bat that is too heavy is just as detrimental to success as swinging too light of a bat.
This means the weight of the bat is three ounces under the length of the bat. For example, if you purchase a 33 inch bat the weight is going to be 30 ounces. If you're wondering what size of bat to purchase for your son, watch him swing it a few times. If your son is 12U and under, have him swing the bat at game speed a few times. If he can maintain good balance then the bat should be ok as far as weight goes. Kids that swing too heavy of a bat at those ages have a hard time maintaining good balance on their finish.
The bat should feel light to the hitter. For younger hitters, we recommend for a game bat the biggest size allowable for your league. Hitting is hard enough. Take advantage of the technology. For older kids, the league will determine the diameter of the barrel. As your hitter approaches high school age, he should use that barrel size. For an off-season bat we recommend a wood or wood composite bat. Take advantage of the technology that a Baum wood composite bat provides its users.

The handle of the bat remains the same width right to the knob of the bat.
Our flared model is different in this way. The handle near the bottom widens or flares out near the knob. Is one knob better than the other? No, just a preference for some hitters and an option for our customers. If you have a standard model knob Baum Bat and you think you might like a flared knob, here's what you do.
