I love the composite wood bats by Baum Bat, the product has been around since I was in college and use thousands of times, thousands of games. All my players use Baum wood bats daily at our at baseball facility. It's our number one wood bat we use in the batting cages every day from August until May. We have other wood bats in our bags but we use Baum Bats as it will last forever. These composite wood bats are reliable and they can last for multiple seasons as why would you swing any other wood bat but Baum Bats.
