This bat is great quality. My 4 year old was swinging a solid alloy bat, and hitting it pretty far. We got this for him and can't be more pleased. It gives a good "thump" when he connects and is able to hit to the fence every at bat. The grip is comfortable and the bat is weighted greatly for tee-ball use. One of the assistant coaches helping the team out, noticed my sons bat and was checking it out. Needless to say, that young boy as a bat just like my son does now.
