Whether you are using a wood bat or a metal bat, you need to have a good bat grip. They have become increasingly popular and there is a reason for this. For players using wood bats traditional pine tar is great, but in wet conditions it can become very slippery. A bat grip will not be as negatively affected in the rain allowing you to still maintain a great grip. Also, these grips aren't heavy, but are more bulky than leaving your wood bat without one. Many players that use these grips claim that it helps their bat fell more balanced. Metal bats all come with their own bat wrap, but some of these grips are just not good. Many ballplayers opt to purchase other models to use on these bats. Also, when a metal bat grip wears down it is great to purchase a new grip to put on.
