How to take care of a Softball Bat

Carbon fiber softball bats are a popular choice for many players due to their light weight and durability. However, like any piece of sports equipment, they require proper care in order to perform at their best. In this article, we will discuss the steps you can take to keep your carbon fiber softball bat in top shape, with a focus on the importance of rotating the bat between hits and using soft .52 COR balls when breaking it in.

Rotate your Bat

First, let’s talk about rotating the bat between hits. This is an important step because it helps to evenly distribute the force of each hit across the surface of the bat, which can prevent damage and improve its overall performance. To rotate the bat, simply hold it by the handle and rotate it 90 degrees after each hit. This will help to evenly distribute the wear and tear on the bat, which can extend its lifespan and improve its performance.

Use Softer Balls

Another important aspect of caring for your carbon fiber softball bat is breaking it in properly. When you first get your bat, it is important to use soft .52 COR balls when hitting it. This will help to slowly and evenly break in the bat, which will improve its performance and longevity. The .52 COR balls are softer than regular softballs, which means they will put less stress on the bat as you break it in. This will help to prevent damage and ensure that your bat is ready to perform at its best when you start using it in regular games.

Additional Tips

Once your carbon fiber softball bat is broken in, it is important to continue taking care of it in order to maintain its performance and longevity. Here are some additional tips for caring for your carbon fiber softball bat:

Hard surfaces

Avoid using your bat on concrete or other hard surfaces. This can damage the bat and reduce its performance.


Always use a bat bag or sleeve when transporting your bat. This will protect it from damage and help to maintain its shape.

Hard Balls

Avoid using your bat to hit balls that are too hard or too heavy. This can damage the bat and reduce its performance.


Avoid using your bat to hit when it is too cold. When you hit your bat in weather under 60 degrees, the bat is hitting a harder ball. Additionally, the epoxy in the bat isn’t as flexible.
