If you are coaching a baseball team, you know how important it is to match the equipment with each player. Same holds true if you are simply a physical education teacher teaching the game for a season, especially since you will be dealing with many players of various age groups and height categories. You need to know the proper range of sizes for each category, to prevent injury and to help the game.

Choosing the right bat is an incredibly important part of the game. The material, weight, and length of the bat will drastically affect your swing and therefore how effectively you can play. The bat size chart should be right up there next to the team’s Goal Chart.
