Players in travel baseball should swing bats with a 2-5/8" diameter barrel often referred to as "senior league" or "big barrel" bats. This is a bit of a misnomer as 2-5/8" is a normal barrel, as opposed to the skinny 2-1/4" diameter bats used only in little league.
- At ages 9-10, players should swing bats which are a drop 10 (-10) bats. The "drop" is the difference between the length of the bat in inches and the weight in ounces. So a 29" bat weighing 19 ounces is known as a drop 10 or -10.
- At ages 11-12, the smaller players can continue with drop 10 bats while the bigger players should begin to swing drop 8 or even drop 5 bats.
- By age 13, all players should be swinging drop 5 bats.
- At ages 14 and beyond, players must swing drop 3 BBCOR bats. The appropriate length of the bat depends on the size of the player.
