> Larger barrel equals more surface contact, even my grand ma-ma could manage damage. Std. bat requires mechanics and precision. Why not get the kids accoustomed to this earlier? In youth leagues, an error is as good as a hit. Fields are smaller, defense is as good as the kid who is least afraid of the ball...instant offense. But is this what we want?

Dennis. No offense as who would not want their kid or those who are being taught to have privy to the best mechanics. But at the lower level is it not more important to have the kids making contact and feeling early success/good about themselves?
