Definitely fast pitch bat. FP bats are usually composite bats, they make the ball go farther and they also reduce sting in the hands. SP bats are usually metal bats and don't make the ball go as far and causes a sting in the hands when hitting the ball.

Will a fast pitch be hit further than a slow pitch?

A fast pitch has the potential to be hit further than a slow pitch.

In general a fast pitch is more difficult to hit than a slow one though which means the odds of making perfect contact are far lower.
