There’s just something about the feel of swinging a wood bat that is different. Maybe its that you feel like you are in the big leagues like your favorite star player. Maybe it’s that you feel like you are playing the game the way its been played for 100+ years. No matter what the reason is, a wood bat is just different and you know it when you swing it. If you want to have that real authentic feel then you need to get a nice wood bat. A cheap one just won’t cut it and it also may break quickly. If you spend the money to buy a nice expensive wood baseball bat it will handle all the punishment you give it and be worth your while. You could go with an old classic like a Louisville Slugger. Or you could go with an up and coming company like DeMarini that has quickly taken the major leagues by storm. Whichever you choose I am sure you will be very happy. All true baseball players and fans need at least one wood bat in their arsenal.
