Increase the amount of practice with wooden bats
Recently, an increasing number of directors have said that “bamboo bat training is important”.
As baseball becomes a world-wide sport and the number of international games increases, so do the opportunities for wooden bats to appear.
Even if you can mass-produce hits with metal bats, there are many Japanese players who can not hit at all as soon as they become wooden bats, and in fact, even players selected as U18's Japanese national team can not play an active part in international competitions. I will.
Personally, I think it is good for middle school students to use metal bats.
If you decide to use a wooden bat from high school baseball (hard type), I feel that there will be more young players who will play an active role in college baseball, adult baseball, and even professional baseball beyond that, but what do you guys think? Do you want?

By using a bamboo bat that suits your body, you can control the bat exactly as you want, making baseball more enjoyable and training more effective.
・The ball can be caught by the bat core
You can learn the feeling of hitting with the core of the bat and the batting technique that is conscious of the core of the bat, due to the characteristic of the bamboo bat that "stretches when the core is removed".
You can also expect to improve bat control by using a bat that matches your body size.
・Learn the correct form
The weight of the head is another characteristic of the bamboo bat. By repeating the swing using the weight of the head in daily practice, you can naturally acquire the correct form of the bat swing.
