What Size Bat do I need?

Updated Saturday February 10, 2018 by Tim Brown.

We get a lot of questions about what size bat is necessary for my player. When selecting a youth bat, make sure they're comfortable with the size of the bat they're swinging. Personal preference plays a key part in selecting a baseball bat, especially for youth players beginning their baseball journey. Heavier baseball bats provide more power, while lighter baseball bats will give a player more bat control and increased bat speed.


The sizing chart is an approximation of what size baseball bat your youth player may need.


Still not sure what size youth bat to select? Try using a teammate's bat to see how the bat feels. Experimenting with swinging different sizes allows players to compare and contrast what they like and what sizes they can properly handle.
