Does mass of a baseball bat affect the distance of the baseball?

Does the mass of a baseball bat relate to the distance the baseball travels?

Yes, as does, of course, the strength of the swing. Too heavy of a bat will result in a weaker swing. Every batter has their own specific bat mass that allows them to hit the ball further according to their swinging abilities. It can take quite a bit of time and investigation for a player to determine which bat is right for them.
