What hits a baseball further a heavy bat or a light bat?

The weight of the bat matters a little but nota lot. You want a light bat because you can swing it not a heavy bat then you cant swing it.

If you are a contact hitter than you would want to use a Stealth or Triton. If you are a bunter than you should get a good magazine or book then stay home on the couch. This is a bulls**t answer!
