I have a 8 year old daughter who is playing on two different rec softball leagues this summer. I have been looking for a new bat for her, but I am having some issues figuring out what size bat would be appropriate. She weighs around 90 pounds and is 4'4-4'5 in height. The problem is that most sizing charts say she should have a 30 inch bat, but when I look at most forums people are saying that even a 29 inch bat is on the long side for an 8 year old. She is not particularly strong, and slightly over-weight, which I think may be skewing the chart a bit. Right now she has a old cheap 29 inch 19 oz bat which I think may be to heavy for her, so I was looking at either a 30-29 inch bat with a drop 12 or 13 for her, but I would like to get her one that would last her at least a year. Would 30 inches be too long? Should I go with 29 inches to be safe?
