For those that are new to the world of Slowpitch Softball, choosing a bat may be pretty overwhelming. The length and weight ratios are different than in Baseball and Fastpitch Softball, not to mention which bats are legal in different leagues and tournaments vary. So, before making such a crucial purchase, it’s important to know the ins-and-outs for what your needs are as a player, as well as the leagues and/or tournaments you will be playing in. Hopefully, this guide can provide a little insight and make the buying process for slow pitch softball bats less complicated and confusing.

Since posting about our “Axe Bat BP Giveaway”, I have gotten a number of questions regarding the Axe Bat and the theory behind the unique design of their patented handle and the durability of the barrel.

If you are not familiar with the Axe bat design and what sets it apart from other manufacturers, start by looking at the handle. For baseball (all materials, including wood), fastpitch and slowpitch bats, More >
The Mako Torq – available for baseball and fastpitch – is the first of its kind, with a rotating handle to allow for free movement of the wrists through the swing. What does this mean? Simply put, the swing is shorter and quicker to the ball, allowing the player to square up more pitches; and longer through the ball, allowing full extension to get as much pop at contact as possible. This innovative technology, combined with Easton’s top-of-the line More >
Dudley is reentering the slowpitch world by introducing the Dudley Lightning Legend bat. With three different types of bats in this line, Dudley is making it easy for each player to find a bat specific to his or her style of hitting.
What makes this bat stand out against other competitors? The answer is simple, the innovative “Grip-Spin Technology”. Grip-Spin is a slightly sticky coating that has been approved by the SSUSA (senior league), which covers the bat from the barrel down to where it meets the grip on the handle. Essentially, this material allows the ball to grip to the More >

So, the past few posts have been solely about baseball and baseball bats- what’s new, what’s coming and even what’s legal. Well, I’d say it’s about time to steer away from baseball for this post and focus on a different sport – Slowpitch Softball.
Slowpitch has come a long way from the days of recreational Church Leagues. I know before I got into the slowpitch world, I had the idea that slowpitch was for the retired crowd, just looking to do something on a Sunday with some buddies. Not that there’s anything wrong with enjoying some time with friends and hitting More >
