About Junior Big Barrel Bats

As always, the most important factors when selecting a bat for young players are length and weight. All Junior Big Barrel Bats feature a length to weight ratio, commonly known as 'drop'. Defined as the number of ounces a bat weighs compared to its length in inches, the higher the number, the lighter the bat. This is important because the right bat length and weight will encourage better hitting mechanics and the proper swing speed at the plate. The most popular ratio is a (-10) drop. Baseball Savings stocks lengths from 25" to 30" with drops from (-10) to (-12) to accommodate all sizes and strengths of young players.

Keep in mind that bat length and weight combine to give hitters top performance. A longer bat has greater reach, allowing players to hit balls on the other side of the plate. But a longer bat might be heavier, and the extra weight could slow down their swing. As a general rule, players who are bigger and stronger might prefer a heavier bat for more power. Smaller players usually benefit from a lighter bat that allows increased bat speed. To determine the length and weight that's best, have them swing a variety of bats and see what they are comfortable with.
