- Keys To A Perfect Swing. Besides instruction and hundreds if not thousands of hours of batting practice and game situations, your key to a perfect Ty Cobb hitting swing lies in matching your hand speed and arm – torso strength to a well-balanced wood baseball bat. For many players in early development years, a youth baseball bat may only weigh 17 ounces and be 27 inches in length with a ¾-inch handle and say 1 ¾-inch barrel. However, by the time players reach adult sizes, your wood baseball bat now become a serious piece of sport equipment, weighing at between 30 to 36 ounces, and offering bat lengths ranging from 30 inches to 34 inches and more. Meanwhile, wood baseball bats used at the college, minor league and major leagues may offer you a 1-inch or greater handle along with a 2 ½-inch or larger barrel end, in order to give you the greatest surface contact area for the incoming pitch.

- Speed, Strength And Batting Success. Size matters. Increase the barrel end of your wood baseball bat and you automatically increase your likelihood of making great ball contact plus control over where you place the ball. Hitting the ball ‘where it's pitched' becomes a hitter's advantage only if you can actually hit the ball. In order to increase bat size, yet maintain control, balance and bat speed during your swing ( with a solid stance and control over your head's movement) you'll need to do extra strength and speed training. Make sure that you undertake supervised training when it comes to both strength and speed conditioning work in order to avoid injury. Meanwhile, adapting your growing strength to increased size in your wood baseball bat means that you'll likely need to increase your batting cage work, or even get access to a pitching machine so that you can increase the volume of pitches that you hit.
