# Comparing Baseball Bats

Hard
Ever wondered which type of bat hits the ball further? In this experiment, we'll compare the swing velocity of aluminum and wooden baseball bats to find out which one is better.

## Hypothesis

The hypothesis is that a baseball will travel further when hit with an aluminum baseball bat, rather than a standard wooden bat.

## Method & Materials

You will need 10 baseball batters, 1 baseball pitcher, 1 wooden baseball bat, 1 aluminum baseball bat, 2 dozen baseball balls, a measuring tape, and 1 assistant. The batters will take turns hitting the ball with the aluminum and wooden bats, and the distance traveled by the ball will be measured.

## Results

The results showed that the ball traveled the furthest after being hit with the aluminum bat, compared to the distance traveled by the ball when hit with the wooden bat. This proves that our hypothesis was correct - a baseball will travel further when hit with an aluminum baseball bat, rather than a standard wooden bat.

## Why do this project?

This science project is interesting because it compares two different types of baseball bats and shows which one is better. It also shows how the weight and center of gravity of the bats affects the distance the ball travels.

## Also Consider

Variations of this science project include comparing different brands of wooden and aluminum bats, and measuring the speed of the ball.
