"wood is harder than medal."

Is a incorrect answer the metal is actually harder and that is the reason the MLB does not use metal bats because they propel the ball at a significantly faster speed.

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 bats hit the ball farther. Every study that has been done on this issue has concluded that aluminum bats out perform wooden bats. The ball leaves the bat at a higher speed and travels farther.

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.
