Bats are usually made of 60-year-old ash trees from northern white which is split. Then the bat, or you can say the wood, is made into a square. After that they make it round to make the shape of the bat.

After the wood is cut down into smaller pieces of wood, called billets, it is put onto a machine called a lathe. This turns the wood at a very high speed so a skilled woodworker can use chisels to carve out the shape of the bat. After testing for weight and proper size, it is varnished and sent to the player or the stores.

The baseball bat is made out of strong aluminum metal or maple wood. The baseball bat was designed to have a handle bar and a sweet spot. In an aluminum bat, it has electric tape, so when you hit it good or bad it won't sting as much. People came up with batting gloves to prevent stinginess with any bat. That's the history of a baseball bat.

A baseball bat is made of harder wood than softball bats which are also made of wood but is softer. The reason is because baseballs are harder than softballs so they need strong wood.

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.

The first patent for an aluminum bat was by William Shroyer in 1924 but they are not made until the 1970's. In the 1960's, Anthony Merola made prototypes for them and he started a small aluminum bat manufacturing business.

History has not recorded who invented the bat. The bat has been needed for the game since its invention and early bats were made by private woodworkers.
