*Composite baseball bats* incorporate a recent advancement in the
technology of aluminum baseball bats for high school and collegiate
players. In general, composite bats are constructed with the same aluminum
exterior as standard aluminum baseball bats, but have a "woven" graphite
wall on the inside.^[1] Composite bats provide an advantageous swing
weight, an improved trampoline effect, a lower bending stiffness, and a
higher damping rate. Recently, composite baseball bats have come under
scrutiny because tests performed by the NCAA during the 2009 NCAA Division
I Baseball Tournament showed that the majority of composite bats used
during the championship failed the BESR test.^[2]

*History[edit]*

Even though the composite bat is a new technology in baseball, composite
type bats have been around as early as the '80s in slow-pitch softball.
With advances in the composite bat technology over the years, these bats
have regained strength. Most notably, Louisville Slugger developed a
slow-pitch bat that was awarded best performance at the 2001 Bat Wars.
Miken responded in 2002 by developing their own composite softball bat.^[3]
Even though composite material has only been historically
