TRADITIONAL PRO WOOD BATS ~ Adult and Youth
A quality bat starts with quality wood. Rawlings goal is to provide athletes with the most durable, balanced and high-performing bat whether it be constructed from ash, maple or birch. Understanding the key differences between these three woods is essential when selecting a bat that will be used for on-the-field play.
As one of the strongest timbers available, ash is durable and known for its exceptional feel. Ash contains a 10-12% moisture content resulting in additional flexibility and whip.
Maple's closed grains are less visible and will not flake or splinter like ash. It has an 8-10% moisture content resulting in a hard hitting surface.
Birch also has a closed grain structure and is Rawlings most durable wood offering. It is the ideal combination of maple and ash characteristics.
