Heavy bats can be used as a strengthening tool, to practice balance, and as a warm-up before your at-bat. These bats are much heavier than regular bats. They can help hitters improve their strength and bat speed through repeated use in practice, as well as help players work on problems with balance at the plate. Hitters often use heavy bats right before their at-bat by swinging it as a warm up. This helps them to increase blood flow in the hands and wrists, and make their regular bat feel lighter.
Training bats are an important part of baseball, and are essential for successful players and teams. These bats, however, should only be used as a practice tool. They should never be used game action or live batting practice.
And remember that good players practice until they get it right, but great players practice until they can’t get it wrong!
