What is the best small barrel baseball bat?

It depends on wheather you are looking for a composite or an aluminum bat. If you are looking at an aluminum bat, Stealth CNT's are a good choice. I just finished my last season with a small barrel bat, and i had the 2009 Stealth CNT. If it is a composite bat you are looking for then i would recommend a COMbat. However, be sure to take into account the player's size, weight, and skill. If you cant make contact with the ball, why does it matter what bat you use. :) Good Luck!
