Aluminum
Aluminum is lighter, which increases control and bat speed. Balls travel
further with aluminum compared to other metals
Despite it generally costs more than other materials, aluminum is durable
and not prone to crack or break
Aluminum bats come in a variety of alloys, each with a different weight
Generally, lighter aluminum alloys are thinner and more durable. The one
thing these have in common is that they are all different combinations of
Zinc, Copper, Magnesium and Aluminum. The following is a list of the
different alloys and their benefits.
7046: This is the standard aluminum alloy used in most bats
CU31/7050: More durable than 7046, due to increased levels of
zirconium, magnesium, and copper
C405/7055: Increased Zirconium content than 7050, giving higher
strength
C555: 7% stronger than C405, has traces of scandium, which
increases strength
Lighter weight bats also increase the "sweet spot," the hitting zone on the
bat's barrel
Aluminum bats, and those enhanced with other alloys, also come in single-
layer or double-layer construction
Double-layer bats offer more durability and power, since the ball rebounds
off the bat with more authority
Cryogenically treated aluminum -- Alloy is frozen and reheated to provide
greater durability, less vibration and 2-4% greater distance
Graphite/Titanium lined
Technology has enabled bat makers to use lighter, stronger materials.
Graphite and titanium are just two of these.
Both are usually added to thinner-wall aluminum bats, enabling bats to be
lighter and increasing a player's swing speed
These materials also increase durability and the batter's sweet spot
Graphite and titanium also help reduce vibrations and the sting of ball
shock, the tingling feeling sent to the hands usually when you miss hitting
the ball in the bat's sweet spot
Wood
Wooden bats offer a classic feel and sound
Look for a grain that is long and wide, which indicates a tree's age and
density
Wooden bats offer more choices in shape and taper that can be
customized to a player's swing
Wood has three big disadvantages:
Bats crack and break
Reduced sweet spots on the barrel
Far less hitting power than metal bats
