Depends on what the flex of the bat is... if you have a stiff flex or one piece bat the ball is bound to travel a greater distance... having a stiff composite bat will deff create a faster exit speed after the bat is swung but this does not mean it will go further... but all in all I believe it is the person who is swinging the bat who determines the distance the ball will travel... having a 400$ bat will not make you hit homeruns.

Neither.It depends. No matter what the bat is made of, if the ball hits the same sized bat in the same place at the same speed then the only difference in the distance will be affected by the weight of the bat. Hevier bat means further range. Although wood absorbs the blow of the ball better giving less force to the ball this pretty much doesn't matter because it is a tiny, minute effect.You can hit a baseball much farther with an aluminum bat than a wooden one.
