What you need to know about your wood bat

Wooden Bats Break.

If you hit a baseball on the cup or the handle of the bat, the odds of breaking your bat are very high.  

They can break first swing or last multiple seasons.


  • ONLY use regulation baseballs or wood safe baseballs
  • Ask if a batting cage uses WOOD SAFE baseballs before using your wood bat.
  • Work on hitting off of a tee to get used to your bat and putting the barrel of the bat on the ball.

DO NOT:                 

  • Use your wood bat in commercial batting cages unless they are using WOOD SAFE balls.
  • Use dimple or rubber balls with your wood bat.
  • Let other people use your wood bat. They will break it.
  • Leave your bat in extreme cold, heat, dry or wet conditions.
