3) How to determine the right Weight
Most bats are also weighted in ounces
Manufacturers have done a great job in balancing the bat's weight to its
length
Many bats have a weight-to-length ratio, often shown as -4, -6, etc.
This basically means a 34-inch (86.4 cm) bat with a -6 ratio weights 28
ounces (794 gr).
Selecting weight really depends on two critical factors -- your strength and
your hitting style
It also depends a lot on your personal preference in weight and length, so
the following are simply guidelines to follow:
Bigger, stronger players generally prefer a heavier bat since they
get the benefits of both the heft and swing power
Smaller players with less strength should consider a lighter bat to
generate a quicker swing
Younger players, too, should consider that a lighter bat increases
control - great for singles hitters, while also reducing the risk of
injury
4) About the Technology of a Bat
Bat technology may seem a little confusing but it's not rocket-science. There are
three essential elements to a bat: barrel size, bat taper and grip.
Barrel size
This includes both the length of the barrel - top part of the bat - and its
diameter
The longer the barrel, generally, the larger the sweet spot for hitting the
ball
As for diameter, the standard is 2.5 inches (6.35 cm) but many players
prefer a smaller barrel that lightens weight and provides more swing speed
Taper
This is the diameter of the bat's handle
Standard bats are tapered 31/32 (78.7 - 81.3 cm) of an inch but can be
slightly larger or smaller depending on whether you want a lighter or
heavier bat
You may prefer the feel of a bigger bat taper, which can also reduce the
sting when a ball isn't struck on the sweet spot
Some players like a narrower taper for the lighter weight and to rotate
their wrists faster when hitting.
