    Smile Wood Bats

    Hi guys, I am new to the forum but have a question in regards to wood bats.... my friend plays in the National Adult Baseball Association and they just switched over to wood bats.... now I am in charge of getting them some "team" bats (they will each have their own as well) just incase their's break or crack.... The team does not have a ton of money to spend on these bats as most of the guys are a little flaky when it comes to money.... Can anyone help me with a website or phone number of someone to call where I might be able to find about 10 or so 33/30 wood bats (hopefully that are of semi-good quality) for maybe $20-30 a bat?? Thanks!!

    I have never seen Dicks when they have some kind of a "sale". I guess I always catch them at a wrong time. I go there a lot and think that it is "pricy"

    My suggestion, speaking from experience, is not to go cheap. I played in the MSBL for 4 years and I coached a sandlot team for several years that played with wood bats. During the first season, we bought all of our bats in The Sports Authority and Modells in that $20.00 - $30.00 range. We went through nearly 6 dozen our first year. Some of the breakage can be attributed to the fact that the kids were new to wood. In order to hit with wood, you have a much smaller sweet spot and a lot more room for error (and broken bats). The next year, we switched over to Pro Stock bats from catalogues such as Baseball Express and the breakage was less, but we still broke a lot. The third year, after speaking to a lot of people, we switched over to Maple Bats from a company called Glomar (now out of business). Among their clients at the time were Shane Spencer and Dimitri Young. We bought 4 dozen and broke 6 bats the entire season. Old Hickory produces great Maple Bats if you decide to go that route.

    Rawlings makes an ash bat that you can buy for 29.99 at Dick's or Sports Authority.

    I would agree that you should spend the money and buy quality bats though. I use the Rawlings bats for BP and LS Maple for games.


    Good Luck!

    There are many choices for wood bats these days. 15 years ago you had maybe a handful of choices, now there are over 30 just for the MLB!

    Anyway, grabbed this list from a site that has several manufacturers on it. Take a look, find one you like and try them out.

    Bump for that. I used one once, and I squared the ball and it went nowhere. It felt like I had hit the ball with a pillow. All compression and no pop

    The summer league I play in has alot of Baum bats for the teams to use. They seem pretty durable and aren't very expensive

    DO NOT GO CHEAP ON WOOD BATS!! I play in MSBL in northeastern WI and we are a wood bat league. I also sell wood bats. I have used one Maple bat for over 85 games in two seasons with others swinging it and it hasn't broken yet. This bat is from www.talbotturnings.com Mike produces a great product and is not very expensive.

    If you have to but team bats though. I strongly recommend that you buy wood composite bats. DeMarini makes 2 great models and Baum bats are good also. Baseball Express makes a composite bat for around $55 that is just like the Baum bat. Brett Brothers also makes a composite bat. Any of these bats should be legal in any wood bat league.

    If you have any further questions feel free to email me at cgfd13@hotmail.com and I would be happy to assist. I love talking baseball and wood bats.

    i agree spend more money for a decent bat. if you go cheap i would plan on hitting the sweet spot every time because the one time you miss it that bat is gonna break and you will have to go spend another 30 bucks again and again. i tried going cheap one year for my amateur team and i bought way too many bats than i should have
