X Bat makes maple wood bats for younger players from ages 3 to 14 in lengths from 24 inches up to 31 inches using the same quality wood and finish as the bats we make for our pros. With a selection of 7 youth models, X Bat is the only place to get a quality wood bat that truly fits every youth players' game. We strongly believe that players should start to swing wood bats as soon as they begin playing baseball. It strengthens their hands, wrists, forearms and teaches them a more compact swing with a more direct path to the ball. Swinging a wood bat that is heavier than the aluminum bats they are used to, improves their hand eye coordination and requires them to be more precise due to a sweet sport 1/8 the size of an aluminum bat. The weighting of a wood bat is different from an aluminum bat as well, forcing the player to "keep his hands inside the ball" and snap the barrel into the hitting zone. Serious youth players are taught to swing wood from an early age as more and more tournaments are being held using only wood bats.
X Bat maple wood youth bats are available in a variety of sizes, weights and configurations with handle sizes from 7/8" to 1" and 7 shapes to choose from.
The Model 73 youth bat is our most popular choice. The extra weight in the knob serves as a counterbalance making the bat easier to swing. The knob makes choking up more comfortable and allows the player to truly build a bat that fits their size, strength, experience and league.
The Model 98 has a longer barrel with more hitting surface than most youth wood bats. It is similar in shape to aluminum bats so the player feels more comfortable with the hitting area.
Model 6 is a traditional bat for a very young player aged 3-6. It has a long handle transitioning with a quick taper to a 2 1/4" barrel. It has a 7/8" handle and a small knob. To make it as light as possible, it is made of ash and is light enough for very young players to swing.
The Model 8 has a thinner handle at 7/8" and a traditional wood bat profile for smaller hands.
The Model 10 has a 15/16" handle similar to aluminum bats are suitable to players whose hands are slightly bigger.
The Model 12 has a 1" handle for players who want to control the bat more. The Model 12 is a very sturdy bat for players facing faster pitching.
The Model 8, 10, 12, 98 and 73 all have a 2 1/4" barrel so they are legal for game use in Little League.
The Model 73BB and 98BB are larger barreled youth bats available in weight ranges as light as -3 in 30, and 31 inch lengths. These have 2 1/2" barrels and were designed for larger stronger youth players not bound in leagues or Tournaments by Rules mandating 2 1/4" barrels. These make excellent batting practice and training bats for young players as well. Players 13 and 13 may find that 32" adult bats are just too big for their developing bodies. The 73BB and 98BB were designed for these players.
