Just saw this message... yeah about 3-4 of my kids try this. Switch to the lighter/smaller bat and they go from never hitting the ball to crushing it.
First game was today... we won 18-3. Very proud of the guys. Had a few mishaps in the last inning... they were getting bored and quit paying attention. Other than that, they played great. We batted through the lineup in all but one inning.
