A player that uses a 34 inch 32 ounce bat will get a different result than a player who uses a 32 inch 32 ounce bat. Remember that a player who hits the ball off the end of the bat will loose considerable distance than if he hits the ball off the sweet spot. The bat that allows the player to hit the ball on the sweet spot more often will achieve the greatest distance.


I would tend to favor the longer bat as long as it does not feel like the player is swinging a pole rather than a bat.
