Slow Pitch Softball Bat


Guys, I'm in the market for a reasonably priced (75-100 dollar) slow pitch softball bat for my company team. I was thinknig ebay would be the best place to get one (used) since we dont need the latest and greatest just something that will hit the ball far and the a bunch of diferent people can use.

any ideas for kinds i should target, and what size/weight would be best.



Hey man, I've played slowpitch and fastball for almost 20 years now in some aspect. Personally I prefer Easton bats. When looking at the length and weights I would first look at the size of people on your team. Myself I have always liked the longer and heavier bats for slowpitch. Seeing the ball isnt coming in as fast the heavier and longer bat works well even though its slower coming off the shoulder once it connects the ball will travel. But then the other thing to look at it is how much drinking is going on before and durring the game, some people might not be able to deal with the longer heavier bat. If there's anything else I can help you with PM me and we'll see what I can do.
