How to maintain wooden bats
The most important thing to watch out for when using wooden bats is"Care for moisture"Is.
The wooden bat is already stored in an airy shade for about half a year (actually more than that) at the time of the square wood before it is shaved. That's how we wait for the square material to dry out completely, and then the bat maker sat down to process it. It is forbidden to be damp in a wooden bat like that!
Even after it has been completed as a bat, it will still contain moisture by the use in the climate and rainy weather,It is recommended to dry the sun to remove moisture on a sunny day.
When Ichiro used to play in Japan, I often saw him hanging his bat on the net before batting practice during the rainy season. When the bat gets wet or gets dirty, be sure to wipe it off with a dry towel before storage, and "stand up" in a place where there is no moisture as much as possible.
A wooden bat is a live bat that breathes. If the way you handle it is violent, the bat will be damaged and easy to break.
On the other hand, if you treat it carefully and in a beautiful state, the bat will last a long time and become a good "buddy".
A player who doesn't care about his tools can't be a top-notch player. This is true in any sport and in any country!
From the moment you get your own wooden bat, don't forget to maintain your bat to become a player of a higher dimension!
