Having had the pleasure of playing ball at the college level to the pro level, I have had the opportunity to use many different products related to the game. I have been playing slow-pitch softball at all levels from the A division with Firestone Tires out of California to my league team. Deciding which bat to use has been one of the hardest decisions in my career. My experience has shown me that the more choices I have, the better informed I will be. In college, I used aluminum and wood bats.   Back in those days, that is all there was to choose from.   Therefore, when I started playing softball after my pro career ended, I thought aluminum would the best way to go. For many years, that was the case.   With the introduction of composite materials to the game, softball has become a more powerful game at the plate. While I test various products, I will give you a full account of my findings. While testing, I like to have with me at least three other players test along with me.   Each player is at different stages of their softball career.

Best ASA Slowpitch Softball BAt

This past September I purchased the DC 41 Denny Crine signature bat in 27oz 34” length bat. The first time we took the bat to hit, it was a sunny afternoon around 4:30 p.m. It was about 75 degrees outside with little to no wind.  We used Diamond 375/44 core balls to hit, mainly because that it what we use in out leagues in my area.

Right out the wrapper, I could tell this was hot the ball was jumping off as if we had a couple hundred swings in it already. I want to say that at this point I opened the bat at the park so when I say out of the wrapper it really was.

Field Dimensions

The field we are hitting on is a standard 300ft field to all fields. My first 100 swings or so I took about 65 of them right off the wall in left center, after that I felt it start to open up. I turn the bat over to my son and let take some swings, his fist swing it was hit about 330ft dead center. The next 100 swings he took they were mixed about half hit out the half driven to the left center gap. I know you might be wondering how I know that we hitting exactly 100 balls each, we have a bag of exactly 100 of the same ball.

Recommendations

I feel that the DC 41 is only going to get hotter as we hit with it, after the initial testing of we ran out of good weather to hit so the second round of testing took place in the spring.  After the off-season we started hitting in Mid-April I found that my swing being out game the 14” barrel really added a lot. I could feel myself miss the ball and the bat made up for it. I was able to hit balls in the gaps with authority. All- in- all this bat is awesome.
