MJ Knighten, Assistant Coach for San Diego Softball, talks about how a batter should choose a bat.
Factors to consider while choosing a bat:
Height and weight: Know what sized bat you can handle for each potential pitch without struggle.
Power and strength: If you’re a slighter player, choose a lighter bat. If you have more muscle mass, you may be able to handle a larger bat size with ease.
If the athlete is new, they should consult with a coach or trainer who’s knowledgeable about bat selection before purchasing one.
