Q&A with Tacoma Rainiers' Dustin Ackley

Before I turned professional I only used wooden bats when I played one summer in the Cape Cod League. There were only 12 games, so I couldn’t tell much. When I got to West Tennessee this spring I really started to learn about bats. It took a long time to find a model I liked. I narrowed it down to two or three. There’s a lot of difference in the wood. Some are lighter, others more dense. (Tacoma Weekly)
