Mike Greene replied to Sarah Bernier's discussion What age should players start practicing with a wood bat?

Robin Rushing replied to Sarah Bernier's discussion What age should players start practicing with a wood bat?
"I wouldn't practice with anything else. As long as wood bat is not too heavy ( do the bat weight test for the player) and same length as metal "game" bat. "

Chris Payne replied to Sarah Bernier's discussion What age should players start practicing with a wood bat?
"Hi Sarah, Great question!  My answer is when your player has reached high school.  Wood bats over the long term are more expensive than aluminum bats because of durability.  Hitting a baseball with a wood bat is much more challenging…"

"How funny.  Doug and I were just talking about this last night.  He was telling me how they had to maintain their own field in college, and he was glad.  Said it gave him respect for the field."
