Do Big Barrell Bats Help or Hurt

Do Big Barrell Bats Help or Hinder Young Hitters? My eight year old was playing baseball this fall on a coach pitched team. It was the perfect situation for the fall with only one practice every Sunday afternoon from 2:00-3:30. It was a great experience, one in which he learned a lot and he had a great time with the other kids on the team. We were also playing flag football this fall, so we didn't have a lot of time for extended fall ball, plus he is only 8 so I wasn't interested in him being involved with a team that was going to play games every week.(I'm not a big proponent of playing year round baseball, but Ill save that for another article.) The coaches decided they would try to play a couple of games and put into action what they had been teaching during the Sunday practices.
