None....Bamboo is not allowed to be used in pro ball because MLB rules specifically require wood bats to be one solid piece of wood...bamboo is hollow. Josh Gibson once used a bamboo bat and hit a 700-foot homerun. After that they never used bamboo for bats ever again.
Completely wrong answer below. Ash and maple are only two wood species used for wood bats at mlb level. Birch has very small following. Bamboo is not allowed to be used in pro ball because MLB rules specifically require wood bats to be one solid piece of wood...bamboo is hollow. Bamboo because bamboo is stronger.That is also what the people in the World series use.

Bats are usually made of ashe, maple and bamboo. The pros seem to perfer maple bats, but MLB may prohibit their use due to splintering issues and potential player injuries.
No...they are now banning aluminum bats for high schools in such states as New York because of how hard the baseball comes off the bat. If they were to use aluminum bats in the MLB, I guarantee you that there would have been at least 3 pitchers killed from line drives since 2005.
