Today, the most popular type of softball bats are made from composite material. Composite is a type of carbon fiber material and it brings the best of both worlds from metal and wooden bats. They are created to be the best quality-price ratio for maximum performance.

Can you Play Softball with a Baseball Bat?

The answer is yes, you can play softball with your Louisville Slugger. However, if you are part of a league, depending on the restrictions they may not allow you to play with a baseball bat.

But more importantly, when you use a baseball bat to play softball you put yourself at a disadvantage. Softball bats are shorter and heavier, with a different sweet spot than baseball bats in order to hit the ball differently. Compared to baseballs, softballs have much slower pitch speeds and they have a different weight and size, which requires bats with different characteristics.

Choosing the right bat can be harder than it sounds. With so many options to choose from it can be tricky to pin down exactly what you're looking for. Luckily, Baseball360 offers a wide selection of softball bat lengths, barrel diameters, swing weights, and more. Whether you're on a college softball team or just looking to play with friends, we have a wide variety of softball bat brands to choose from!

Things to consider when purchasing a Softball Bat

When choosing a new bat there's many things you need to consider but one of the first should be what league the bat is approved for. While the difference might seem slight, certain softball leagues have specific requirements concerning weight ratio, swing speed, etc., so it's important to know beforehand. 

Next, you'll want to consider what the optimal material is for your bat. Depending on the type of hitter you are, this can be an important choice.

Most slowpitch and fastpitch softball bats these days use a one-piece aluminum alloy body, and most governing bodies accept these kinds of bats. Aluminum softball bats provide an excellent balance of durability and hitting power, but some might find them a little heavy. 

The primary alternative to aluminum, the carbon composite softball bat, has become a recent favourite of softball power hitters. These bats feature new technology using advanced carbon fiber composites to create a very powerful bat with a lighter weight than normal. Composite USSSA Softball bats have become very popular in recent years, but it should be noted that not all governing bodies allow bats with a composite construction. Make sure to be informed before making a purchase. 

 

How to Break In a Slowpitch Softball Bat?

To break in a softball bat you simply need to use it a lot before a game. We recommend that softball players take their bat to a batting range and hit it multiple times while turning it every couple hits. When you are sure that the surface of your bat has been hit it is a good start. Take the first swings nice and easy! As you go and hit the ball you can start to increase the intensity of your swings.
