Parts of a Baseball Bat

7 8


1. Knob—may contain a label showing the bat’s weight

2. Handle or Grip—may be taped or covered in pine tar
3. Upper Grip—tape/pine tar will end here
4. Junction or Handle Taper—in composite bats, parts will be fused here
5. Label—keep the label up for wooden bats, to hit across the grain and avoid breaking the bat
6. Barrel—thickest part of the bat; ideally where the bat should connect with the ball
7. End—bat can still connect with the ball here, but fouls are more likely
8. Tip or Cup—non-wood bats will have either a rounded tip or plastic insert; wooden bats may be cupped
