alumiun bats are better because they are hollow and because they have a bigger sweet spot than wood

another reason is that they bend then use the momentum to "smack" that bal out of there

the power in and alumiun bat is about 15% more then that of a wooden bat... but i personal like the swing of a wooden bat the weight seems to be more towards the end of the bat and swings it self

also, the aluminum bats gets weaker each time it hits the ball and the wood gets stronger.

Does a wood or aluminum baseball bat hit further?

Neither.It depends. No matter what the bat is made of, if the ball hits the same sized bat in the same place at the same speed then the only difference in the distance will be affected by the weight of the bat. Hevier bat means further range. Although wood absorbs the blow of the ball better giving less force to the ball this pretty much doesn't matter because it is a tiny, minute effect.You can hit a baseball much farther with an aluminum bat than a wooden one.
