Why Swing A Baum

The AAA Pro Model Baum®Bat was developed to meet requirements as articulated during 1991 by personnel of Major League Baseball teams and the Office of the Commissioner. These parameters became the wish list for the specifications of the ideal training/game bat for all of baseball. The perfect wood bat! This ideal bat has revolutionized baseball world wide, returning the game to "wood like" as it was intended to be played.

 

Baum Enterprises is the leading manufacturer of wood composite baseball bats in the world. Baum®Bats hit, feel and look exactly like professional wood bats, and the Baum®Bat's amazing durability outlasts wood 200-500 to one.

Baum Bat TaylorMajor League Baseball instructed Baum Research & Development to walk a fine line by creating a durable bat while allowing it to break at the upper limits of thick handled Major Leag ue wood. Our company is the pioneer in research to evaluate the performance of all bats including metal, wood, and composite bats, both for baseball and softball.

 

Baum Research & Development is the first company to invent true wood composite bats. They include our AAA Pro Model Baum®Bat, FungoBaum®Bat and the Monster Baum®Bat.


The Patented AAA Pro model Baum®Bat is the first approved high-tech wood composite bat approved for minor league game use by Major League Baseball. It is also approved for NCAA and NFHS use.

Baum®Bats — world patents pending — are durable, unique wood composite structures that are manufactured under conditions similar to those used to make advanced aerospace products. Our products are the result of years of intensive research and development in materials science, physics and mechanical engineering. As our reputation proves, the Baum®Bat is simply the best bat in the world!

With the AAA Pro Model Baum®Bat,
you will:

Save money and without a doubt
become a better hitter

Prove to coaches, scouts and fans
you can hit with a wood bat

Thousands of bats have been placed in world wide service in professional baseball, collegiate summer leagues, colleges and high schools. All reports indicate the same thing — the AAA Pro Baum®Bat is a wood bat, except it is far more durable. Thousands of hits were attained on some bats while maintaining the inside-jam pitch effectiveness due to bat sting and wood-like ball exit velocity. Umpires, fans, coaches and players could not tell any difference in the game, and most importantly the hitters became noticeably improved at the college and high school level while maintaining the game as it was designed.

Three Models To Choose From

 

AAA Pro Baum®Bat

 

A designed combination/clone of the five most popular Major League hardwood bats. The AAA Pro Baum®Bat hits, feels, looks and sounds exactly like wood, with a maximum diameter of 2.505" and a sweet spot diameter of 2.473". The major difference is durability — imagine not having to replace your wood bat every 20-70 swings when it breaks! This is without a doubt the most durable bat in baseball. It has no equal!

Fungo Baum®Bat

Designed as an ultra lightweight beauty for coaches and trainers to hit grounders and fly balls. The Fungo Baum®Bat is up to 37" long and weighs only 22-24 ounces, and is not trimmed down like all other fungo bats. Fungo Baum®Bats are the exact size as our AAA Pro Baum®Bat. It is the largest, lightest and fastest-swinging, most durable fungo on the planet!

Monster Baum®Bat

Designed to improve the development of bat speed during all hitting drills. The Monster Baum®Bat is a heavier bat with an even length-to-weight ratio to a plus-six ounces over the length of the bat. The extensive use of the Monster increases your strength, quickness and stamina, and at game time, the end result is a tremendous increase in bat speed and resulting power with a standard game bat such as our AAA PRO model.

These three photos above are examples of the 2000 frame per second digital camera research that Baum Research & Development conducts. This pioneering work has led to our Patented (#5,868,578) Batters Analysis Testing System and other instructional improvements for hitters of all skill levels. We see what no one else sees.
The Baum Hitting Machine
The patented (#5,988,861), state-of-the-art Baum Hitting Machine can determine, with extreme accuracy, batted ball exit velocity for any bat/ball combination to a combined speed of 200 mph.

Independent Test Results:
At the request of Major League Baseball, Tufts University, under the direction of Professor Robert Collier, conducted an exhaustive materials performance and technical evaluation comparing the Baum AAA Pro Model with the C-271 hardwood models. In the report Professor Collier said:
"In summary, both field and laboratory experiments demonstrate that the Baum AAA Pro Model wood composite bat is comparable to a professional C-271 wood bat in dynamics and performance. The AAA Pro Model has, on the other hand, proven to be far more durable with regard to both strength and maintaining its performance levels after sustained hitting."
As a follow-up, Tufts University in Massachusetts has re-evaluated the production models for durability of field results compared to the standard C-271 model. Their conclusion:
"The Baum AAA Pro bat continues to perform at the same level confirming the results of durability testing carried out last Fall in which performance was unchanged after more than 2,000 hits."
