The LOG is a heavy maple bat used for overload training. The Log can be used to warm up before practice or in the on deck circle before batting. It is used to build strength i the hands, wrists and forearms while hitting in normal practice situations. Many pros use a series of Logs at diminishing weights to build strength during the offseason, using a 34/40 for a week, then a 34/38 the next week, then a 34/36 the next week, then a 34/34 the week before starting games.
