The right length-to-weight ratio is extremely important when choosing a baseball bat or softball bat. When it comes to the length-to-weight ratio, you might hear the words Balanced and End Loaded. So, what do those terms mean?

Balanced:

A balanced bat has its weight evenly distributed throughout the entire length of the bat which will help players generate quicker bat speeds which really is the key to power. Balanced bats are commonly preferred by contact hitters because it allows them to reach the highest swing speeds possible without sacrificing any control during the swing.

End Loaded:

An end loaded bat has a portion of its weight concentrated towards the end of the barrel near the end cap which causes the bat to have a “top-heavy” feel. This can cause end loaded bats to be a little more difficult to control, so they are typically recommended for physically strong hitters who do not need assistance generating bat speed. By placing more mass directly in the hitting zone, stronger hitters can generate more momentum with similar swing speeds resulting in the ability to hit the ball a greater distance.
