After my son almost hit one over the centerfield fence in a scrimmage this season using his Brett Bros MB110 wood bat the coach is finally giving my son the green light to exclusively use his wood bat during games.
I couldn't convince his travel team coach the last couple of years that he hits more consistently with his wood bat but the fact is he is more comfortable with it.
And that is what it boils down to, IMO, what bat the kid is more comfortable swinging is the one he will hit the best with. My son has always used a wood bat to swing in practice so naturally he has grown more comfortable with it.
And with the use of BBCOR bats the only advantage now over a wood bat, IMO, is the fact that BBCOR won't break.
