    Looking for a composite bat for my 7 Year old DD

    I hope we make the jump to 10u next year. It's tough in my area to find other 8u teams, so we end up having to travel a couple hours for tournament.

    Looking for a composite bat for my 7 Year old DD

    Some of you need to watch some more 8u. There are some amazons playing 8u that definitely can launch a ball. The main reason I went with the carbon 1 -13 was it was light enough for my dauther and didn't mess up the mechanics in her swing. And the weight on it seems accurate. I looked at lxt...

    Looking for a composite bat for my 7 Year old DD

    My 7 year old is very small. I got her a 28" drop 13 mizuno carbon 1 for Xmas. It's so much lighter than the team bat that was a 28" cf6 drop 11. She doesn't complain about hand sting on mis hits anymore either. I think it was around $190 on Amazon.

    DD Not Seeing The Ball

    My 7 YO playing coach pitch had a issue early in the year with the coach lobbing the ball. She is really short, so to make contact she would be hitting balls above her head. We made a pitching change and now have more of a straight line with some speed pitcher. Lobbying the ball did make my...

    Just turned 7

    Nope, she really is 3' 6" maybe 3'7" by now it has been a couple months since her last checkup. We haven't played a team yet with anyone smaller than her. I have seen some gigantic 8u girls though. We played a team that their catcher was at least 5' and around 120 lbs. It was pretty damn funny...

    Just turned 7

    She is 42" tall and about 45 lbs and yes that bat is too big. It's a 29" -12 vendetta. She uses the team bat in games and it's a 28" -11 cf6. I am leaning towards getting her the 28" -13 f20 Mizuno. The CF6 team bat still looks too heavy for her.

    Just turned 7

    I don't push her very hard because of her age. She is very competitive so I go at the speed she wants. My biggest fear is burning her out at a young age. She is going to have this year and next at 8u, so I figure there is plenty of time. I am going to try to sneak her into a older rec league...

    Just turned 7

    I haven't messed with her swing too much. This is her first year of 8u travel ball. She fouls a lot of balls straight back. I think that's from collapsing her front knee. What other problems do you see?

    Xmas bat for 7 year old

    Out of these, what do you think the best option? They are all between 170 and 200.

    Xmas bat for 7 year old

    My just turned 7 year old plays for a 8u team and I want to get her a new bat for Xmas. She is 42" tall and weighs 43 lbs. She swings the team bat that is 28" cf8 -11. I have been looking at the LXT -12 and the Mizuno f20 -13. She does pretty well with the team bat, but I still feel like it's a...
