What Are Fast-Pitch Bats

Fast-pitch softball bats are designed to perform specifically to our sport or, to the ball coming in at a high speed. Fast-pitch bats are typically made of aluminum, and are also known as a composite. The difference in a softball bat from a baseball bat is that many softball bats are designed to have a little bit larger barrel area or, a little bit larger sweet spot. Partly due to the fact that the ball, the ball is a little bit wider in softball than it is in baseball. And to show you a difference here, a baseball bat is usually a little bit more evenly dispersed, where with this bat, you can see the barrel is definitely wider. Composite bats are designed to create a trampoline effect off the wall.
