I have a "ton" of bats that are no longer able to be used for league play. None have the 2012 BBCOR (-3) or USSSA BPF 1.15 (-5 and lighter) stamp on them. I would not put them out for sale because I would not want an unsuspecting young player or a parent purchase an illegal bat. Instead, I'm thinking of bringing them to a recycling center. The price of aluminum is high right now, so I can at least recoup some of the money I will need to supply 13 teams with new bats this year.
Lou has a great idea with the wood bats even tho you will go through a lot more of them than aluminum and your costs could go even higher. The power stats will also shrink with the wood bats but the kids would be getting the "real" baseball experience. It's your call. TM
I would buy a baum bat or similar product. They react the same as wood but do not break when you get fisted. They are more expensive than wood but you will end up saving money by not having to replace broken bats. Teaches kids to hit the ball on the barrell also. Most college wood bat leagues use these.
I see that there are Bamboo for little kids out there, and Bamboo is extremely hard to break, even when you get fisted. But I am going to let the kids buy their own bats this year.
