Bats are not immune to cheating and unethical practices. For example, learning to hit for power takes time, as does the process of making contact with the ball. Unfortunately, there are a few common, unapproved, and unethical bat break-in methods that allow cheaters to gain an edge. JustBats.com outlines them here because while we don't condone illegal bat break-in methods, it's good for players, coaches, and parents to be well-informed about these practices.

Posted by JustBats.com on Jun 7, 2017 3:12:29 PM

Bat Review: 2018 Louisville Slugger MLB Prime America Wood Bat

Posted by JustBats.com on May 16, 2017 8:02:34 AM
