At B45, we were the first to manufacture yellow birch baseball bats. From the beginning, we’ve known that yellow birch is the best material to use for designing a bat that delivers both power and strength! If you’re looking for power that will send your balls flying faster and further, a B45 yellow birch bat is just what you need.
How do I know what size of bat I need?
This is one of the most asked questions. And, arguably, one of the most challenging to answer. And, it’s highly unlikely that all members of your team are going to share the same preferences for bat style or size. Because of this, it’s a good idea to keep a few options in your equipment bag.
To properly determine your bat size, use the following steps:
Start by lifting one arm to your side until it reaches a 90-degree angle
Then, place the knob of the bat to the center of your chest
Hold the bat horizontally, in line with your raised arm
If your fingertips can comfortably reach the end of the bat, it’s a good fit! If you can’t quite reach, you’ll want to repeat these steps with a longer bat.
Does baseball bat barrel size matter?
Yes! Though barrel size is 100% based on personal preference.
Depending on your goals and skill level, you may opt for a small or a large barrel bat. While there is no right or wrong choice, each offers benefits and drawbacks. For starters, small barrel bats are typically more balanced and easier to control. Large barrel bats, on the other hand, offer greater surface area and force. Depending on your skill level, you’ll either find large barrel bats easier, as they offer greater contact with the ball or harder since they can be heavy and challenging to coordinate.
The best way to choose your barrel size is to test out both and stick with whichever size offers you the best performance.
Why choose a B45 yellow birch bat?
Birch is a hard wood! However, unlike other hard wood options like maple, birch has a unique flexibility to it. When you’re hitting balls with so much force, it’s important to choose a wood that isn’t going to chip away or split after one bad contact. The combination of strength and flexibility makes yellow birch the most powerful and durable choice for wooden baseball bats.
Birch will give you the most power when you hit outside of the sweet spot, which maple cannot do because of its stiffness.
