Its early spring. the sun just above sunrise and dew still on the grass. Coach carries the team bat bag and his son Tyler carries the bucket of balls.

The coaches prepare the lineup and go over the rules with the umpires. After a brief warm-up its time to “Play Ball”. Each boy is anticipating his turn to bat. One after another they swing fiercely mostly with little success. In a lost ditch effort some boys are trying their teammates bats hoping for better results, most times worse than before.

When considering which bat is right for me you must consider the following: Length, Weight, Diameter and Material.
For now lest keep it simple. Diameter is usually determined by level of players age group. Consult your league for specifications. Now lets discuss the weight. Generally speaking the bigger stronger players will do better with a heavier bat, while the smaller less developed players will do better with a lighter bat. When it comes to length, your stonger and taller players will feel more comfortable with a longer bat. Keep in mind a longer bat will also add weight to the bat.
Many players choose a bat to long thinking it will help them reach the far side of the plate. This is usually a mistake. Their are other methods you can use to improve hitting outside pitches.
Getting back to the coach and his suggestion to have a batting practace. You might not have the right bat but it might be in one of your teammates bag. Use this oppertunity to try out different weights and lengths. The ideal bat will feel comfortable to swing yet allow you to have good bat speed. Remember bat speed allows you to hit more pitches. Even those difficult ones. Keep in mind although bat speed is important you also need weight and control to put the ball where you want it to go.
