Wooden baseball bats are meant for the advanced ballplayer, typically utilized in collegiate, adult amateur, semi-pro and pro leagues. The vast majority of wood baseball bats have a length-weight difference of minus-three at the most, which becomes standard at the high school level. This means the number of inches in length cannot be any more than three greater than the number of ounces the bat weighs.
Some of the most well-known brands for wooden bats include Rawlings, Louisville Slugger and Marucci. Maple is the most commonly used type of wood, but some bats are made of ash, birch and even bamboo.
