Aluminum bats allow baseball player to hit the ball farther and faster than with a wooden bat for a few different reasons. The first reason is that a player can swing an aluminum bat about 5 to 10 miles per hour faster than a wooden bat.

Wood bats make a “crack” sound after impact with the ball while aluminum bats make a ping sound. This sound can be quite intense and loud as it is a 1-frequency sound. Composite bats make a “pop” sound which is also a 1-frequency sound but not as loud as the “ping” sound in aluminum bats.

Wooden bats are heavy and therefore allows a batter to hit the ball harder. The harder the bat and the faster the swing, the harder the ball will be hit and the further it will fly. The center of gravity of the wooden bat is located further away from the hand making it feel heavy near the end.

Nov 06, 2008 · Wood is denser than aluminum ( of course I assume the aluminum bat ishollow) so the ball that bounces better off a dense material, should bounce off a wooden bat, better than a hollow aluminum bat. An aluminum bat is used so that the cost maintaining a baseball team is reduced.

The distance traveled by the ball will be the same if an aluminum bat and a wooden bat is swung at the same speed. Background Baseball bats were originally made from wood.

In contrast, wood is less elastic: it is deformed permanently and to a greater extent than aluminum. As a result, a ball colliding with a wooden bat, such as the replica of Babe Ruth’s Louisville

The aluminum also tends to "give" a little more than a wood bat when it comes in contact with the ball.

The bottom line: Non-wood bats do lead to higher batted ball speeds and, as a result, to harder line drives and deeper fly balls. But there’s an, ahem, aluminum lining to this story: The process used to manufacture metal bats can be tightly controlled.
