To determine what length bat your son will need consider the following:
In most cases, bats are measured in inches and weighed in ounces. Typically, a bigger, stronger player will prefer a longer heavier bat, while a smaller player will prefer a shorter lighter bat. Since a player's power is generated through bat speed, it is important that you can swing your bat through the strike zone at maximum speed. Keep in mind that the right bat for you is based on personal preference. Make sure the bat you pick feels good when you swing it. The negative number found on all aluminum and composite bat represents the length to weight ratio of the bat or swing weight. An example would be on a 30? bat that has a "-9? would have a swing weight of 21 oz.
While we recommend visiting a store location in order to try out the different bats to see what your son is most comfortable with, we realize this may not always be possible.
You can use the following "Bat Length by Age" Chart as a starting point:
Age 5-7 years: 24"-26" Bat Length
Age 8-9 years: 26"-28" Bat Length
Age 10 years: 28"-29" Bat Length
Age 11-12 years: 30"-31" Bat Length
Age 13-14 years: 31"-32" Bat Length
Age 15-16 years: 32"-33" Bat Length

Detail says it's One Piece, but info says Alloy Barrel/Composite handle? Which is it?
Asked by: Coach34747
The EASTON Youth Power Brigade S3 2015 Baseball Bat -13 has Hyperlite Matrix Alloy construction for durability. The handle is composite material which incorporates a reinforced carbon fiber polymer, but the bat is all together one piece.
