I know that bat speed is important. However, there has to be some sort of ratio that is optimal between bat speed, and bat mass.
DD swings a 30/18. During some hitting drills the other day, she was forced to use a smaller bat because she accidentally left hers at home (just got a new bag, and forgot to put it in there). I couldn't help but notice her swinging this bat that is 1.5 oz lighter, and it seemed like it was really whipping through the zone. The bat that she had to use is an inch shorter as well. Anyone have any thoughts? Or more importantly, and hardline facts/numbers on this subject. Thanks.
