Wooden Bat
Supposedly, the wooden bat due to the weight of the ash wood used to make bat as opposed to the aluminum. However, it's not really the bat, it's the speed of the thrown ball and the speed with which the bat makes contact. Ask a baseball coach or a physics professor for more info.
Usually a wooden bat, but aluminum bats hit faster, which is why I was almost decapitated before my time a few weeks ago.
they think the aluminum would hit farther because a wooden bat would not hold up as good
that's right an aluminum bat hits so far that the major leagues don't even use them trust me
Aluminum bat hits faster but i also think a aluminum bat would hit farther too because the aluminum bat is lighter and the faster you swing the farther it goes.

no because a aluminum bat is less heavier than a wooden

A metal bat will hit the hardest because metal is 85% stronger than a wooden bat.

I think the composite bat hit the farthest.

With an aluminum bat the ball jumps better off of the bat then with a wooden bat.

A wooden bat can hit 415 feet or more. You can hit about 30 or 50 feet more with an aluminum bat.

the aluminum bat will hit farther if you are under age nine, the wooden bat will hit farhter if you are over nine.

Typically a lite weight aluminum bat will hit a ball further than a wood bat.

It is easier to hit a home run with an aluminum bat becuase the ball gets hit further because of the strength of the aluminum which is stronger than a wooden bats power.

Assuming that the same person is swinging in each case, an aluminum bat will hit the ball farther than a wooden bat. Other variables to be considered though would be the length, weight, and age of the bat.

An aluminum bat may or may not hit a baseball further, depending on who swings the bat. Both bats have advantages. First, let us compare the qualities of the two designs. The only real difference is weight. The aluminum bat is much lighter than the wooden bat. Because the aluminum bat is lighter, the batter has more control. It is easier to make "last-minute adjustments" to his swing. Once a wooden bat is swinging, adjustments are difficult. Also, less time is needed to get the aluminum bat moving. The batter can wait just a little bit longer before deciding how to swing with an aluminum bat. Because the wooden bat is heavier, it has less "recoil": A wooden bat moving at the same speed as an aluminum bat will hit harder. A batter who can get a wooden bat moving fast will hit the ball further, provided he makes contact at all. Also, a wooden bat doesn't vibrate as much. This is better for the batter's hands. Overall, the wooden bat has more potential power, but the aluminum bat is easier to use. A very experienced player that can tell how the ball is pitched just as it leaves the pitcher's hand will do better with a wooden bat. The player that likes a little extra time to decide how to hit, as well as a little opportunity for slight adjustment, will do better with an aluminum bat. In the end, it is a matter of personal preference.

Generally, a human can hit a baseball faster and farther with an aluminum bat than with a wooden one because of the elasticity of the material. Statistics also show that balls coming off of aluminum bats create more injuries. This is why they are considering banning aluminum bats in college and high school baseball.

With an aluminum bat the ball travels farther than with a wooden bat the metal bat also has a larger exit speed witch is why it's illegal in the MLB.

No, why do you think they use wood in the major leagues you idiot

User Avatar

Aluminum bats are lighter and hit farther than wooden bats. Only wooden bats are allowed in major league baseball. Youth and college players can use metal bats.

You can hit a baseball better with an aluminum bat because it has more pop than a wood bat has. Also aluminum bats are lighter than wood bats. This is why coaches recommend aluminum bats over wood bats. For more information go to: Little league.com ------------------ Amateurs can hit it farther, yes.

An aluminum bat hits further because it is hollow. That's why you see the pros using wooden bats because with their skill level in hitting, every clean hit would be hit out.

Two reasons: 1. A wooden bat is more dense than an aluminum bat therefore it absorbs more of the energy of the ball and causes the ball speed coming off a wooden bat to be slower. 2. Wood has no maleability. In other words the aluminum gives a little when striking a ball and then reforms, like a spring.

baseballs come off an aluminum bat faster and harder, than they do on a wooden bat. that is why in the MLB they make the players use wooden bats, to prevent serious injury. i myself perfer to use and practice with a wooden bat in the off season, because it teaches you to use the right mechanics to hit the ball harder and farther. but during games i use an aluminum ball bat, and during practice i use a wooden bat. i would restrain from using a carbon-fiber bat because they have a tendency to crack and break. but that is just my opinion on carbon fiber bats.

the wood bends more than the metal. ------------------------ At first, aluminum bats produced a faster traveling ball when the ball was hit sharply, but modern aluminum bats can be tuned to almost perfectly mimic the response off of a wooden bat.

One difference is the sweet spot size. On a wood bat the sweet spot is about 3 inches. On an aluminum bat it is about doubled. Another reason is that the way wood bats are made, they don't get as much pop as an aluminum. I personally like swinging wood more aluminum because you have to swing harder with wood, which would eventually allow you to hit the ball farther with aluminum.

baseball could be hit the farthest because of the way the ball hits the bat
