Best Home Run Derby Softball Bats | Bombs for the Anemic

By Bat Digest

Updated September 23, 2023

We've tracked and tested the best bats for softball bat home runs. If they are legal in your league, then these are the ones to get.

Slowpitch softball, known for its yeti-shaped players and immobile third basemen, has produced several iconic bats. Among them, and maybe chiefly so, is the Miken ULTRA II softball bat. As a single piece composite, the bat's post-break-in trampoline effect resembles a spark's effect on jet fuel. Until its release in 2011, never had the anemic male population been given so many chances to sign autographs in a church parking lot. The bat is found on our best slowpitch softball bats leaderboard. And, to date, the Ultra II stands atop the chart of best home run derby softball bats ever.

What is the Right Bat Size

The right bat size is always important. Some suggest you should size down for maximum bat speed, some say size up for more mass. For your particular type of swing, the trick is to maximize the impact power to the point of the ball and, for most, that means sizing up a bit. If you want to hit it further than get a heavier bat. That's not always true, but it most likely is for you.
