I'd say a metal bat because wood would absorb more energy than metal.
Most paint dries faster on wood.
obviously on wood dumb,it absorbs the liquid in it.
the wood bends more than the metal. ------------------------ At first, aluminum bats produced a faster traveling ball when the ball was hit sharply, but modern aluminum bats can be tuned to almost perfectly mimic the response off of a wooden bat.
Because metal is a conductor
i think metal dries faster because if it gets wet it bounces right off and wood soaks it up but it stills dries faster so i really think they both dry faster.
"wood is harder than medal." Is a incorrect answer the metal is actually harder and that is the reason the MLB does not use metal bats because they propel the ball at a significantly faster speed. - Clay
Studies have shown that the speed the ball travels after being hit by a metal bat is 3 to 8 miles per hour faster than a wood bat. This would translate to a ball hit for a home run travelling 20 to 50 feet further off a metal bat as opposed to a wood bat.
