> Batspeed is where it is at. But you also have to swing the right bat for you. You can swing a stick very fast but cant hit a ball anywere. The bat's mass has alot to do with hitting the long ball.
Sorry batspeed affects the distance the ball travels more then bat weight. For every 5 MPH great bathead speed you hit the ball 30 feet further in baseball and 20 feet further in softball. The addition of one ounce in weight will only contribute 4 feet in distance to ball travel.
This comes striaight off a sport science text book.
