For a relatively simple piece of equipment, the variety of options when it comes to buying a baseball bat--wood or composite? what size is right for me? should I pay $30 or $300?--can be intimidating. The most important factor to keep in mind, from Little League to the pros, is that buying a bat is a personal decision. It's critical to select a bat properly tailored to your height, weight, skill, and strength levels, within your budget, but equally important is simply how the bat "feels" to you.
