A rotational hitter will hit a baseball harder with a heavier bat. This is because if they have enough bat speed, it will have a greater force pushing the baseball the other way.
In general, a heavier bat will hit a ball further than a lighter bat. It all depends on the speed of the bat. There is more torque in heavier bat swung at the same speed as a lighter one.
A metal bat hits the ball further than a wooden bat because metal is harder than wood.
Typically a lite weight aluminum bat will hit a ball further than a wood bat.
simply answers please just answer Heavy or Light
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. Also what are you a contact hitter, power hitter, or more of a bunter? If you are a power hitter use an Exogrid or an Omaha. 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! I want the physics. Same person swinging, obviously can swing a lighter bat faster, but more mass in a heavier bat. Come on nerds, I need empirical evidence.
Aluminum. Corking a bat reduces the collision. A ball travels further with an uncorked wooden than a corked wooden.
easton synergy or stealth, or demarini phoenix or CF3
The weight of dhoni's bat is 1270g or 2lb 13oz........it would be quite heavy........no wonder he hits the ball so hard.-shekhar.
The Ball will go further with the metal bat.
