21. Baseball Bats
Finding the right baseball bat has a lot to do with preference and the different regulations for age groups and leagues. With all that said though, there are still a few bats that set themselves apart. Here are a couple of our favorite bats for both adults and youth players.
This bat consists of a two-piece design. It has a bigger barrel for contact, while also being lightweight for faster swinging. A big part of this is Easton’s ConneXion technology and handle design. Both will help with generating power behind every hit.

It is also a hybrid bat though, meaning it consists of both composite and pure alloy. This bat also has Rawlings’ Precision-Optimized-Performance technology which also helps with accurate and powerful hitting.
With a larger barrel and great balance, it is easy to see why the Easton Ghost X is a favorite for youth baseball players. It also has one of largest selections of sizes, drops, and lengths. All this will allow you to customize the bat for a specific hitter.
With the largest barrel in the youth bat market, the Mizuno Ghost is going to allow for a large “sweet spot” on the bat that equates to more hits. Mizuno is making a name for themselves with this youth bat, and it would be a great gift for a youth baseball player.
These Nike batting gloves are endorsed by MLB All-Star Mike Trout. As one of the best hitters in the MLB, I am not sure how much more convincing you need. A perfect baseball gift for players of all levels, these gloves are sure to have teammates asking where they got them from.
