Does a corked bat help hit the ball better then a wooden bat?

A corked bat might help with hitting the ball a bit but because the mass of a corked bat is different then to a wooden bat that you would be hitting it with less mass witch means you won't be hitting that much home runs form a corked bat. plus the corked bat is illegal to use in professional baseball in America. so if you wanted more home runs don't use the corked 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.

What is the value of Sammy Sosa's corked bat?

On June 3, 2003, in a game played between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays Sammy Sosa cracked his bat revealing that the bat he was using was corked. I do not know the where about's of the famous Sammy Sosa corked bat. Earlier bats that Sammy used that were given to the Hall of Fame were later X-Rayed and no cork was found.In order to come up with a value the bat would have had to been sold at auction or compare it to an auction of a similar bat. A Pete Rose bat that was supposed to be corked sold for $103,631. on in 2005 The bat was bought by an Internet casino company for a publicity stunt to saw the bat in half, and raise money for charity. I don't know if the Sosa Bat would reach that kind of number but it would be an interesting auction.Recent players caught with corked bats include: Wilton Guerrero in 1997 when his bat cracked he raced to pick up the pieces instead of running to first base. The umpire quickly caught on to his actions. Chris Sabo in 1996 claimed that the corked bat he used belonged to another player. Albert Bellein 1994 got caught and the "Batgate" incident was born as team mate Jason Grimsley crawled through a ceiling and stole the bat from the umpires room. The scandal was uncovered as the bat that was used to make the switch had Paul Sorrento's name on it. (you can't make this stuff up) Billy Hatcher was caught in 1987 and Graig Nettles broke his bat in 1974 when superballs came bouncing out! Norm Cash admitted he used a corked bat in 1961.
