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.
it goes farther when hit by a metal bat
Aluminum bats are lighter and hit farther than wooden bats. Only wooden bats are allowed in major league baseball. Youth and college players can use metal bats.

a metal bat yes a metal will go farther
You can hit farther with a metal bat.
metal is actually harder and that is the reason the MLB does not use metal bats because they propel the ball at a significantly faster speed. - Clay
Aluminum bats hit the ball farther. Every study that has been done on this issue has concluded that aluminum bats out perform wooden bats. The ball leaves the bat at a higher speed and travels farther.
"wood is harder than medal." Is a incorrect answer the metal is actually harder and that is the reason the MLB does not use metal bats because they propel the ball at a significantly faster speed. - Clay
Metal most definitely, hence why Metal bats are not used beyond the college level. MLB studs are far too powerful to use anything but Wooden bats.
Wooden bat absorb more energy than metal bat during the contact with object.
A hollow metal bat will go far. A thick wooden one goes okay too.
No, why do you think they use wood in the major leagues you idiot
Metal bats hit the ball further which is why at unprofessional levels of baseball they use metal but when you get to the MLB you have to use wood.
wood bats are made of wood which is able to hit softly but aluminum is made of metal and it can hit the ball harder because of its mass.
With an aluminum bat the ball travels farther than with a wooden bat the metal bat also has a larger exit speed witch is why it's illegal in the MLB.
to stir things. You would use a wooden spoon instead of a metal spoon because metal spoons are not good with pans.
Metal. But the more significant difference is exit speed. The ball comes off a metal bat traveling significantly faster than off a wooden bat.
There isn't really a standard weight for wooden baseball bats like there is for metal and composite bats. Most of the time wooden bats are about a -2 to -3 drop. For example, a 33in bat would weight about 31 - 30 ounces.
wood bats are solid so they absorb the energy of the ball but metal bats compress and return the energy back to the ball.
