When choosing your best softball bats for either fastpitch bats or slowpitch bats, there will be 2 main things which the players need to consider. Those 2 things are the bat’s length and weight. These two will depend on players’ build. Bigger players prefer to utilize bigger bats because they are a bit stronger and also like to hit their ball harder and further.
Smaller players would prefer smaller or lighter bats for their faster swings. Bats that are picked up should be extremely comfortable to the players for their better swing.
Batters need consider the bat drop as they are buying one.
The drop is figured out by taking the weight away from the bat length for instance if the bat weight is about 25 Oz and its length is about 34 inches then the bat drop may be -9. The qualified drop for the bat in the ASA would be between -10 and -13. Anything higher than that would not be allowed because it gives players an additional advantage over others.
When buying the softball bats to play, the players need to ensure that they are complying with league requirements. It is said that in softball leagues they compile its regulation and rules about which kinds of bats that must be used as playing softball games. There are some leagues from the ASSA to ASA and every league has their own different rules. An instance of rules which they have may be about the bat drop and the design of bats. A few leagues prefer the players to use the wooden bat while other leagues are quite more flexible so they allow the batters to choose their bats freely.
