Review of E-Z Bat from Monkey Business Sports3:45 PM
My boys spend a lot of time outdoors. Playing football, volleyball, and baseball keep them happy and fit, but it's sometimes difficult to include the youngest and oldest boys in the same game. We recently tried out the E-Z Bat from Monkey Business Sports and were really very pleased with how it worked. It's a foam-covered bat with two foam balls that have holes in the center. They slide over the end of the bat, up against a ring to keep them in place, and younger kids can swing the bat, sending the balls flying off the end of the bat. Since there is no need to "hit", they can feel where the sweet spot of the bat is, and get practice on the proper form for a quality swing.
As kids get more skilled, they can remove the balls from the bat, and play the typical way. (They can be hit off a tee or pitched to them.) The balls and bat are soft, so there is little to no chance of injury when playing, and we enjoyed spending a sunny afternoon pitching balls to our oldest son, and letting the younger boys "swing" with the practice balls already on the bat.
This is a very smart product, one I recommend to parents who want to give their kids an advantage at baseball, softball, or t-ball at a young age. (Or for non-competitive families that just want everyone to have a chance to play!)
