Ted Williams, one of baseball’s greatest hitters of all-time, famously said “I think without question the hardest single thing to do in sports is to hit a baseball.” The most gifted major leaguers miss 66% of the time. For kids just learning the game, the odds seem pretty stacked! Not only are some bats chunky and heavy, they can be as long as 32″. That’s about 2/3 the height of your average tee-baller. Luckily for budding backyard ballplayers and little leaguers alike, K-Roo Sports has just the thing.
This hollow, lightweight plastic training bat measures a more manageable 24″, which is the perfect size for little hitters! Designed with the same tapered head as real bats the pros use, this bat is an invaluable training tool for developing hand-eye coordination, a balanced swing, and an instinct for good contact. The significantly reduced weight produces fast hands and allows for more swings, while the tapered design encourages young hitters to find the best point of contact.
A safer alternative to wood and aluminum bats and designed for slow and limited flight, these bats are great for backyard games and formal practice alike. No bruises, broken windows, or chasing home-run balls into the next block.
