History of the baseball bat?

The baseball bat is made out of strong aluminum metal or maple wood. The baseball bat was designed to have a handle bar and a sweet spot. In an aluminum bat, it has electric tape, so when you hit it good or bad it won't sting as much. People came up with batting gloves to prevent stinginess with any bat. That's the history of a baseball bat.

How is a baseball bat made?

Bats are usually made of 60-year-old ash trees from northern white which is split. Then the bat, or you can say the wood, is made into a square. After that they make it round to make the shape of the bat. After the wood is cut down into smaller pieces of wood, called billets, it is put onto a machine called a lathe. This turns the wood at a very high speed so a skilled woodworker can use chisels to carve out the shape of the bat. After testing for weight and proper size, it is varnished and sent to the player or the stores.
