Wood: Wood softball bats are very rare but are slowly regaining favor with softball enthusiasts who would rather hear a whack and not a ping when the bat meets ball. A wood softball bat is bottle-shaped and can weigh between 32-35 ounces (around 8 ounces heavier than an aluminum bat). Traditionally, wood bats have been made from ash. However, ash is light and soft and bats made from ash tend to splinter and dent fast. Wood from maple, oak, and bamboo is also used for these bats. Maple is harder and its grain is denser as compared to ash, making it less susceptible to splintering and chafing. Bats made from Chinese bamboo are the closest wood bat equivalent of an aluminum bat. Bamboo is extremely light-weight and ha a tensile strength higher than that of steel.
Aluminum: The increased research and engineering in the science of bat making has resulted in high-tech aluminum softball bats that can cost upward of $300. Aluminum bats are lighter thereby enabling batters to generate greater bat speed and control. They are stronger and more durable than wood bats and they do not break; however, they may dent or crack over a period of time. Aluminum bats are available in different alloy and weight combinations. Light aluminum alloys that are thinner are more resilient and provide a larger hitting zone or "sweet spot". Aluminum bats are made in single-layer and double-layer combinations; double-layer bats are used by the power-hitters.
Graphite/Titanium lined: Aluminum bats are lined with graphite or titanium. These light, durable, and strong materials are added to aluminum bats with thin walls in order to make the bats lighter. Lighter bats help batters to generate more power in their swing. Bats lined with graphite or titanium have a greater hitting zone or "sweet spot". These materials are shock-absorbent as well and aid in reducing the shock felt when a stroke is mistimed.
Composite materials: Bats made from composite materials such as carbon, glass, or Kevlar are light weight, rigid, and sturdy. Composite materials enable bat manufacturers to incorporate varying strengths and stiffness in different parts of a bat. The result is a bat with stiff bat handles for greater control, low stiffness hitting areas for better performance and reduced shock, and differentiated swing weights. Bats made from composite materials have a large hitting surface with a more pronounced "sweet spot". However, the extreme velocities at which the ball rebounds off the bat can pose a safety hazard to the pitcher who has to react in a very limited time.
Their made out of different kinds of wood like pine oak maple and so on
Wooden bats are made of ash or maple.
Ashe or maple.
wood or metal
Metal bats are made out of aluminum. They replaced wooden bats because too many wooden bats broke. Now wooden bats have started replacing metal bats in high schools because metal bats can hit the ball harder than wooden bats and cause more injuries.
Wooden bats are made on a lathe.
Wooden baseball bats are made out of Northern White Ash, Maple, and sometimes Hickory or Bamboo.
There isn't really a standard weight for wooden baseball bats like there is for metal and composite bats. Most of the time wooden bats are about a -2 to -3 drop. For example, a 33in bat would weight about 31 - 30 ounces.
Maine is the state that made the most wooden toothpicks
Metal most definitely, hence why Metal bats are not used beyond the college level. MLB studs are far too powerful to use anything but Wooden bats.
wooden bats were banned because the bats break too easy and the wood chips got in peoples eyes and shoes.
No wiffle balls are made for plastic bats and have holes in them to prevent them from going as far. Baseballs are made for wooden or aluminum bats and are solid. (thats why hitters can hit them so far)
Most were wooden and later the wheels and then other parts were made of various metals.
Baseball bats are made from wood. White ash is the most popular wooden bats and maple bats are common also. There are also aluminum bats. Aluminim bats are made out of analloy using aluminum with other metals with aluminum/magnesium being the lastest great aluminum bat. Other alloys have been used and will keep being used as technology continues in this area
