    I've seen those. Never thought about using it for the cage but more for soft toss and t-work.

    For the cage my son uses this:


    If he doesn't have that with him it's a wood bat we picked up locally.

      wood bat only in BP and cages. How can a kid get a feel for when the bat is gonna sting if you use gimmick bats.

        I prefer wood for cage work.
        Even a store quality bat will last quite a while at BP speed.

        1 bat used to last me a whole season when I played in college.

          look into getting a Baum bat, they last forever. i know a few people who have them and have had them for 5+ years.

          personally, i prefer only maple bats.

            Baum bats are pricey. Bamboo bats are good for cage work. Trust me, he will really focus to mak sure that he hits is sweet.
            See ball, hit ball.

              Yeah baum bats are well worth the price... if you go on ebay a dude has a store that sells them with a lil cheaper shipping and handling... Baum bats are composites by the way, undestructable and they are approved all the way up to the minors

                get a zinger... you will want it to last a long tine, so you'll be forced to hit it perfectly... no joke

                  try birch for the cage. Hard as a rock and teaches you to hit on the barrel, cuz if u don't the ball will go like 2 inches. But yeh, the birch can hold up to some serious cage abuse without breaking.

                    I would like a soft 2 piece bat for the batting cages. So it doesnt sting the hands. but a little heavier, and only 2 inch wide.

                      wouldn't want to teach them to hit the barrel, if it stings the hands they get feedback, if it doesn't well they are just in there swinging a bat right.
