Hopefully, this guide can provide a little insight and make the buying process for slow pitch softball bats less complicated and confusing.

The thought behind the new standard and change is the desire to make non-wood bats perform closer to the wood material – which will require better skill from the players, reduce the exponentially increasing offensive (particularly More >
