Why Trust our Reviews Us?

For starters, maybe you shouldn’t. We are, after all, a relatively anonymous blogging group with a self proclaimed mission to give objective information on baseball, softball and fastpitch bats. Other than that, and maybe a few Alexa.com rankings you can look up to see how legit of a site we are, there isn’t much verifiable proof we can indeed provide.

But Really, Why?

We’d argue there are at least a few other things that you can verify quite easily on the site. You’ll notice we don’t sale baseball, softball or fastpitch bats and never will. We aren’t some secret arm of baseballexpress or homerunmonkey or the dozen or so other sites looking to sell a bunch of bats. We never will sell bats although we’ve been asked more than once by major manufactures to do so. There are plenty of horses jockeying for position in that space and we’d rather not deal with customer service and major purchasing agreements. As such, at least it could be argued by us, our lack of incentive to sell you a certain brand of bat helps us stay more objective.

Additionally, we often post our own pictures and upload videos showing we at least have had access to the sticks we review at one point. Peruse the site for just a few minutes and, we think, you’ll find the largest repository of non-vendor owned baseball, softball and fastpitch reviews on the planet. As such, we’d claim we do have some knowledge in the space if not a serious amount of time on our hands.

We can also tell you, although you will ultimately need to take us at our word, that we see anywhere from 50,000 to 100,000 unique users per month visit our site (the variation is depending upon the time of year as baseball interest is very cyclical). About 30% of them are returning visitors. Meaning, at least if our math is right, 15,000 to 30,000 people per month actually come back to our site. We’d like to thank that had something to do with the fact we do a somewhat fair job in reviewing baseball, softball and fastpitch bats.

We’ve Hit Them All, Really

We also claim, because it is true, that we’ve swung almost every single baseball, softball and fastpitch bat in the performance space since the middle of 2013. With that swinging, we’ve reviewed hundreds of bats, both softball and baseball. We’ve also spent countless hours with baseball and softball players watching them hit with different types of bats and getting their direct and unfiltered feedback. As well, we’ve listened to and discussed bat performance metrics with several individuals who work directly on the production of the bats we review. Much of that data is compiled into somewhat readable articles and youtube videos you can find with these pages.

So you know, Justbatreviews.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.

In the end, we are simply a group of dads and players who love the game and think it good to share the data and insight we’ve collected on baseball, softball and fastpitch bats to other parents and players looking to cut through industry hype and vendor bias. We think the authenticity of our work in the pages on this domain are our best proof. That by no means makes our recommendations full proof and we’ll be the first to admit such. But justbatreviews.com attempt at unbiased data about the performance bat space is an honest and good faith effort attempt in getting in our reader’s hands the best, unbiased information we can gather on the bats manufacturers and vendors are now asking you to spend several hundred dollars upon.

We’d hope, no matter what your league, you’ll find some help in the pages we’ve spent thousands of hours delivering (oh yeah, and clicking on an ad when you find it interesting).
