Like when choosing a glove, there are many options for girls softball bat to choose from. From DeMarini to Easton to Louisville Slugger, the list is endless. Everybody has their opinion on their favorite girls softball bat, but how does one go about picking their first bat?
The first thing to understand is that girls softball bats can get pricy. In youth leagues, bats were around $25. Once travel ball starts coming into play, girls softball bats can cost over $300. With that being said, the difference in price does lead to a difference in the bat. A higher-end bat will have a greater sweet spot, thus causing the hit to be more solid and travel farther. If a player is just starting out in the youth league, an aluminum girls softball bat will suffice. No need to break the bank. When players get to travel and high school level play, they should begin to use composite bats.
Softball Bat Brands
As mentioned before, there are several different girls softball bat brands to choose from; not to mention the different models that fall within each brand. Choosing a bat based on which bats the Olympic team or a favorite college team is using is not a smart idea. Most of the time, these teams are sponsored by a manufacturer; so basically, whichever manufacturer gives them the best deal is what they will be using. A good suggestion is to try other teammates bats at practice; just to get a feel for the bat. If that is not an option, do not be afraid to physically swing the bat in the store to get a feel. In the end, the way a bat feels in oneâ€™s hands is more important than the reviews they get online.
In the end, girls softball bats help teams hit, which helps them get on the bases, which helps them score runs, which helps them win games. A player needs to find their bat so that way they can be a part of the winning action.
