Wanted to get some thoughts on metal compared to wood in a BBCOR world. The main thing I am wondering is if the main difference between BBCOR 'metal' bat and wood bat is durability? If that is the…Continue

"The point of the facts  was  "at the time of the Civil War" there were fewer trees in the USA. As an example, in 1865 the state of New Hampshire was 20% forests 80% fields. Today 80% forests ,20% fields. The majority of the…"

"Mike, I agree with your assessment of a lineup.  I would rather have 9 players hitting for average and not 1 home run all season.  You win games by having baserunners on and players hitting for average.  You do not under any…"

"Christine, sorry but the conversations that I have had with bat makers is the opposite. One of the reasons wood is not being pushed harder for college and HS use is a serious lack of quality wood. I have spoken with several bat makers that produce…"

"Mike, there is plenty of good  wood for bats. There are more trees in the USA now than at the time of the Civil War (1861-1865).Many small makers provide first class bats because of several factors: they are not bound to MLB and player…"

"Thank you pw. I was wondering when someone would get to the actual facts and numbers. There is way too much false info out there from all types of experts. While I am a huge fan of wood and feel it is the way the game should be played, I also…"

"a 400 foot home run off a wood bat  who travel 410 off a bbcore  and 450 off the old metal bats. Some high scool players were hitting balls 115 mph in bp with the old metal bats  with drives reaching 500 feet."

"I read a report that said the ball comes off the BBCOR bats 5-7 mph slower than other  "original alum bats"  and that equals to about 25 ft shorter on distance. Does anyone know how that data compares to wood.  "

"Many small makers produce great wooden bats. Barnstable Bat makes "pro grade ,pro use "tm   bats that are tough,balanced and of first quality. Hundreds of pros have used our bat with great results and our  prices are fair . Tom"

"So you are saying that a player will be able to swing a drop 3 "metal" bat faster than a drop 3 wood?"

"Gregory...you have it wrong. You want the weight to be in the barrel so the the MOI (moment of inertia)is increased at impact. Research clearly shows that it is not the weight of the bat but how the weight is distributed along the bat that makes a…"

"The main diff between metal/aluminum and wood is performance.  BBCOR defined is Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution.  It's pretty simple.  Drop a baseball on the ground and drop a racquet ball on the ground and see the…"

"Walt...not true about a ball leaving the bat at a lesser speed than when thrown.  Most MLB homeruns must exceed 101 mph in order to be a home run. The exit speed of the ball off the bat depends on several factors and the research clealy shows…"
