Full Product Overview
The AM22 wood baseball bat is a duplicate of the bat swung by Pirates' superstar, who is one of the best outfielders in the game today. The AM22 features a long sweet spot with a gradual taper into a modern sized handle. From there, you get a medium sized flare into the knob with just enough of a lip to catch the bottom of your hand.
The AM22 excels at driving the ball into the gaps and sending them over the fences. This wooden bat is slightly barrel weighted, as would be expected for any wood bat geared towards a power hitter.
AM22 Wood Bat Stats:
Barrel: 2-1/2" average diameter but long for large sweet spot; slightly barrel weighted
Handle: 15/16" average size, gradually tapers from the barrel
Knob: medium size flare from handle; just enough lip to catch bottom of your hand
Weight: -2 drop (length - 2 = weight in ounces) but decent balance for power hitter bat
Comparable competitor model: AM22
Power guy wants the pop but not the end weight. He will trade barrel diameter for an easier swing.
Bigger extra base hitter wants more sweet spot and can handle the extra overall weight to get it
Player who likes more flare in to the knob and more feel of the bat in his hand.
