Woods bats are generally thought to be used by Major League players only, but woods bats can be very useful to youth players, high school players, and college players as well.
Wood bats or wood composite bats are great for batting practice and taking reps in a batting cage. Wood bats are ideal because they are a lot cheaper than aluminum and will save you the wear and tear on your aluminum bats. Batting cage balls are hard on your aluminum bat because they are dense and heavy which will take the life and pop out of your bat. Wood bats don’t loose their pop and will take the punishment of the batting cage balls.
Another advantage of using wood bats is bat control. Wood baseball bats are heavier and have a smaller length to weight ratio, which is in a scaled down way like weight training. Once you have been in a cage and practiced with wood, it will be make a world of difference when you get on the field and hit your aluminum bat. The ball will fly off the barrel and your confidence will be sky high.
