How To Break In A Composite Baseball Bat

How To Break In A Composite Baseball Bat


Hey, guys. I’m Nick with JustBats.com and today we’re
going to be going over how to break in a composite bat like this one right here. Some bats are going to have a rotational index
that are going to help you when breaking the bat in. Others that don’t have a rotation index, you
can use the labels to give you a guide of how much you’re rotating the bat. So, basically, the idea here is you’re going
to want to start by hitting balls off a tee and rotating the bat a quarter turn between
each hit. So, I’m going to start demonstrating that
for you now. Now that I’ve taken that first swing what
we’re going to want to do is rotate the bat a quarter turn before hitting the next ball. And we’re going to continue that process of
rotating the bat a quarter turn for the rest of the process hitting 100 to 200 balls. After you’ve completed that first 100 to 200
swings off the tee, you’re well on your way to your bat being broken in. The following step, you’re going to want to
hit 50 or so swings taking either soft toss or front toss that Tommy is going to help
me with here. Again, you’re going to want to keep rotating
that bat a quarter turn between each swing. After you’ve finished those 50 or so swings
off of front toss, we’re going to back it up to a more full BP setting. From here, you’re going to take another 50
or so swings and by the end of this you’re going to be pretty much done breaking your
bat in. I’m going to start that process now, still
hitting and rotating the bat a quarter of a turn. You’re gonna rotate. After you’ve finished those 50 or so swings,
your bat is going to be ready for game play. That’s it for today. Keep checking in for more tips and tricks. If you have any questions, feel free to submit
