alumiun bats are better because they are hollow and because they have a bigger sweet spot than wood

another reason is that they bend then use the momentum to "smack" that bal out of there

the power in and alumiun bat is about 15% more then that of a wooden bat... but i personal like the swing of a wooden bat the weight seems to be more towards the end of the bat and swings it self

also, the aluminum bats gets weaker each time it hits the ball and the wood gets stronger.

One difference is the sweet spot size. On a wood bat the sweet spot is about 3 inches. On an aluminum bat it is about doubled.
