Improve your hand-eye coordination skills by training with the Meiga MAT Bat! The MAT Bat is a 20 oz. training bat that has an adjustable length from 27"-34". To adjust the bat length, you simply press the push button on the bat and slide the barrel up or down into the desired length. This durable plastic training bat is perfect for soft toss drills or taking batting practice with golf ball size poly/soft foam ball pitching machines. Through repetitions, the MAT Bat can be used as a softball or baseball training aid that focuses on hand-eye coordination development and speed training. Suitable for all ages and sizes. Comes with 5 perforated plastic golf balls.
As a baseball coach, what are some ways that I can incorporate the MAT Bat into my practices? The MAT Bat is an effective vision/speed training bat. The 20 oz. weight and the diameter of the bat places a greater deal of concentration on hitting a small ball with a smaller barrel bat. The MAT Bat is length adjustable which allows multiple players of different sizes to use one bat. Soft toss, soft-foam/plastic poly-ball pitching machines, or over hand toss are some examples of drills that coaches use the MAT Bat with.
Can you use regulation size baseballs or softballs with the MAT Bat? No, the MAT Bat has passed and gone through a series of tests using plastic golf balls and soft-foam balls.
"I work with large groups of students and I am always looking for a hitting tool that will create something different as well as curiosity. I like the MAT Bat because it is only one bat and can be adapted to several lengths. Therefore, one bat fits all. We like using the MAT Bat with plastic golf balls which helps with vision." -

"We currently use the MAT Bat in our preseason practices and during the season. It is a great way to help develop better hand-eye coordination skills for our players. It can easily be used in pre-game warm ups also. The player who really enjoyed practicing with the MAT Bat was my 8 year old grandson before his summer league games. He eventually went on to become the MVP in their final tournament." - Bill Taylor - Grosse Pointe North High School
