Best Softball Bats 2020 - Find The Best Option For You

Softball bat sizing

When looking for a softball bat, you want to select:

  • A comfortable weight
  • The correct length for your size
  • The right weight distribution for your ability level

Click here for a step by step guide, and follow these basic tips:

1. Select a bat that you can hold outstretched for 30 seconds: You need a bat that is an appropriate weight in order to increase the power in your hits. 

Hold the bat in your dominant hand in front of you at a 90-degree angle for 30 seconds. If your arm starts shaking or even begins to drop, the bat is too heavy. Repeat this process until you feel comfortable with the weight.

2. Pick a bat that is an appropriate length for your height: Here's a general idea of what length you should use based on your height.

  • If you are 5ft 5in (1.65m) - 5ft 8in (1.72m), opt for a 32 inches (81 cm) or 33 inches (84 cm) bat
  • If you are over 5 ft 9 in (1.75m), opt for a bat that is 34 inches (86 cm)
