My (and now my son's) favorite tape-job is done like this:
Start by wrapping several times just above the knob to your desired thickness (provides a good padded base).
Once that's done, spool out a couple of feet of tape and spin it while letting it hang freely from the bat handle. Keep spinning it until it's wound tightly like a small rope.
Spiral wrap the "rope" as high as you'd like then come back down with full unfolded tape to cover the "rope", overlapping each wrap, until you're back at the bottom where you wrap a couple of times then cut the tape.
You could use any number of rope-like objects under the wrap to provide a different feel on the grip, but the tape-alone method can be done in the dugout if necessary.
Also, you might want to use a shoelace or something to temporarily wrap up the handle (as the rope-like object) just to get a feel for which way you prefer it wound (with or against the fingers).
After the tape job is complete, you can always give a quick once-over with "real" (commercial) padded bat tape to make it pretty, but just covering the tape in pine-tar works fine, too.

A bat is a stick required to hit a ball in a baseball game
a baseball bat is a "lever" in the way that the ball comes off the bat. When the baseball makes contact with the bat, the bat gives, or bends. What causes the ball to then travel is when the bat snaps back into a straight object. Thus, the bat is, in a way, a lever.
the worst bat is the worth bat
When you swing a baseball bat you are converting potential energy to kinetic energy, when the bat makes contact with the baseball in transfers a lot of that kinetic energy to the baseball.
Softball bats are designed to hit softballs. Hitting a baseball with a softball bat may damage the bat. Either hit a softball or get a baseball bat if you do not want to risk damaging your bat.
"He was frightened by the bat, and swung at it with his baseball bat." "The bat is a flying mammal." "In baseball, you have to be careful how you swing the bat." "The children took turns trying to bat the piñata while blindfolded."
The bat slows down when it meets the bat
yes because it's just a baseball bat
No. A frozen baseball will die off the bat because the reason a baseball reacts to a bat is the connection between the ball and the bat. The bat will not affect the ball in the same way when the ball is frozen.. I recommend trying this because it will damage the bat.
