Let’s rewind to a more simple time. In the early days of baseball, there wasn’t innovation or any bat regulations. Players grabbed anything that was made of wood; wagon wheel spokes, ax handles, broomsticks, etc. Little did we know, Axe Handles would come full circle in the 2000’s. Players would reshape these pieces of wood on one end to form a better grip and the other end into a barrel. We have come A LONG way since then. Right now, we have over 450 wood bat options with a variety of over 8 different wood types.
As the popularity and advancements in metal bats continue to grow, the importance of hitting with wood bats cannot be overstated. If you have dreams of going pro one day, or simply hitting like one, then you should definitely consider having one of these best wood bats in your arsenal.
