Aluminum Bats Vs. Wooden Bats
I am doing a presentation on bats and I was wondering if you know of any good websites that compare the two.Ryan Maher

I am in 8th grade and I am writing a paper on the advantages about aluminum or wooden bats. I am trying to figure out which one hits farther if the same amount of force is used on it in, and the ball must hit the same part of the bat.bobby j

An aluminum bat hits it further, which is one of the objections to them. Major League Baseball doesn't use them because it would distort old records; kids leagues sometimes object because of the belief that it increases the dangers of the game. Exactly why they hit further I don't know for sure, but I believe it's because the surface of an aluminum bat is harder (a ball will bounce higher off a hard wood floor than off a mattress).
