Training Bats

Training bats come in various styles. Every serious player uses a baseball training bat during the "off" season.  The various styles of traing bats offer the ability to work on different aspects of your swing. The best hitters usually train with more than one type of baseball training bat. Whether you are a wooden or aluminum bat fan, there are some really fantastic training bats out on the market that are worth considering. Here is a brief synopsis of what is available on the training bat market.

Weighted, Heavy Swing, One Hand Trainer and Resistance Baseball Training Bats

Weighted bats are heavier than game bats. The idea is to build up strength in the muscles used to swing a bat. Most of these models have a wood construction. They are for use with live hitting. This is done either off of a batting tee or in batting practice.

The Heavy Swing company has created innovative training bats to help batters increase wrist strength and develop proper swing technique. The knob of the bat is weighted so the hitter must pull the hands though the zone with extra force to complete the swing. There are youth and adult models as well as mode with a wodo barrel. There are also model for fastpitch softball. All of the bats are for use in actual hitting practice.

One hand trainer wood bats are shorter in length than actual bats. This is so that a hitter can control the weight with just one hand. There are many training drills that a coach can implement either using a batting tee or soft toss.

A resistance bat is basically a handle on a rubber band. It is a strength building tool. You fasten the elastic band to a stationary object like a fence. The hitter then spaces him or herself a distance that makes the band taught. The hitter then repeatedly simulates their swing. The band creates resistance and therefore the hitter must exert extra energy to complete the swing. This ultimately builds up strength in the muscles used to swing a bat.
