metalMetal baseball bats will most likely go farther. A lot of people believe that wood bats hit farther than BBCOR though

User Avatar

no because a metal bat is heavier

User Avatar

it depends on how hard the ball is it if you hit hard with both meta and wood wood goes farther

Metal bats hit the ball further which is why at unprofessional levels of baseball they use metal but when you get to the MLB you have to use wood.

Because you can swing it faster and it is lighter than an metal bat

I just did a Science update on baseball in my labratory.I am a professional Scientist and my studies have shown that a metal bat hits farther.

Wooden bat absorb more energy than metal bat during the contact with object.

No. A BBCOR bat is made out of a "dead" metal substance. The composition of these bats makes them work more like wood bats, but not exactly like them. Any given metal bat will hit farther than wood bats. This is why you see people trying to break distance hitting records with metal bats as opposed to the wood.

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.

Aluminum bats hit the ball farther. Every study that has been done on this issue has concluded that aluminum bats out perform wooden bats. The ball leaves the bat at a higher speed and travels farther.

"wood is harder than medal." Is a incorrect answer the metal is actually harder and that is the reason the MLB does not use metal bats because they propel the ball at a significantly faster speed. - Clay

A hollow metal bat will go far. A thick wooden one goes okay too.

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.

Depends if its made out of metal or wood stupid.

Studies have shown that the speed the ball travels after being hit by a metal bat is 3 to 8 miles per hour faster than a wood bat. This would translate to a ball hit for a home run travelling 20 to 50 feet further off a metal bat as opposed to a wood bat. Click on the 'Metal Bat vs Wood Bat' link on this page to read a very interesting article about these studies that were performed on the two different types of bats.

Thick wood like a baseball bat is not very flexible so when the ball hits the bat and it bends farther than it can the bat will snap

User Avatar

it can depend. usually if a metal bat is struck on the handle its going to vibrate and hurt alot, if you hit a wood bat there it will either break which wont vibrate at all or the bat will stay intact and probably hurt more than a metal bat

User Avatar

The core of a baseball bat depends solely on whether it is a wood or aluminum bat. The wood bat is made of one piece of wood cut to specific measurements. Aluminum bats are hollow shells of metal. Love the Akadema bbcor Apocalypse bats and wood bat series both are made in the USA.

Depends on the speed of the pitch and the hitter. In fastpitch softball metal would hit farther, especially with a composite bat.

You take a wood or metal rod then form it in to a bat shape. Click on the 'How to Make a Baseball Bat' link below to read a simple explanation of how to make your own baseball bat.
