I don't know if it is different with a metal bat(i dont see how) but I did play D-1 College Baseball and we use to do drills where we would practice hitting a ball off a tee with a downward swing and try hitting the back half of the Baseball so that we would put backspin on it. Our coaches also had us watch tape of great pro hitters doing the same thing. We were told that backspin caused the ball to carry farther off the bat.

Did an aluminum bat or wooden bat hit the farthest?

Wooden BatSupposedly, the wooden bat due to the weight of the ash wood used to make bat as opposed to the aluminum. However, it's not really the bat, it's the speed of the thrown ball and the speed with which the bat makes contact. Ask a baseball coach or a physics professor for more info.Usually a wooden bat, but aluminum bats hit faster, which is why I was almost decapitated before my time a few weeks ago.they think the aluminum would hit farther because a wooden bat would not hold up as goodthat's right an aluminum bat hits so far that the major leagues don't even use them trust meAluminum bat hits faster but i also think a aluminum bat would hit farther too because the aluminum bat is lighter and the faster you swing the farther it goes.
