Breaking In Composite Baseball Bats

Composite baseball bats are the best performing bats by far. Those who use a composite though are well aware of the extended break-in period to get the bat up to it's peak performance. Here are a few tips to get your composite bat in game ready shape.

Composite bats take much longer to reach peak performance due to the way they're made. Breaking in a composite baseball bat can take from 100 to 200 solid hits to get to peak performance. Hitters should be sure to hit regular baseballs off a pitching machine or pitcher at 40 MPH or faster. Using rubber balls, or hitting at slower speeds, will not break in the bat correctly.

While going through the 100-200 hit count, batters should rotate the bat 1/8" between each swing so the bat is broken in evenly. If the batter fouls a pitch, or takes one off the handle or end of the bat, do not rotate the bat and do not count the hit as part of the 100-200 hit count.

Never hit your composite baseball bat in cold weather. Manufacturer's recommend using composites in 70 degrees or warmer temperatures and anything lower will increase the potential to break more easily.

Now that you've learned a bit more about composite bats, find baseball bats for sale at Baseball Rampage including wood, composite, hybrids, and many more.
