Best Answer

It depends on how the ball is hit. Metal, or aluminum bats, have a larger sweet spot. A sweet spot is the place on the bat where it is possible to hit the ball with the most power and control. On wooden bats, the sweet spot is smaller than on aluminum bats, but the sweet spot is denser, and will give you more power. However, this is a generalization. Certain types of wood have different sweet spots, for example, maple bats have bigger and softer sweet spots than ash bats. Also, certain types of metal are different.

Overall, wood bats can hit a ball farther, but it is harder to hit with a wood bats' full power.
