There’s not much to differentiate from t-ball bats, but we try our best here.
Our favorite tee ball bat is the Axe Avenge. We love the ergonomic handle, light swing, durability, and price point. All the things that little kids and their paying parents want to see. Even still, tee ball bats aren’t worth worrying about; they are all pretty much the same (except the angled handle on the Axe). Just make sure you get the right size (which is small). Get the smallest you can find if your kid is 4 or 5 years old. No one is hitting for power, and bat control is what it is all about. If you want something inexpensive (and, honestly, you should) then the Raptor or Venom from Rawlings and Franklin will work great.
We updated this article in the fall of 2023 with more generally available options.

What is the Right Bat Size
The right size tee ball bat is usually the smallest you can find. There is virtually no value in sizing a tee ball bat for maximum power. At this stage, most are working on putting the bat on the ball consistently. If your kid is hitting it hard enough that he needs to size up, consider jumping him up a league into coach pitch or whatever the next phase of your local league’s prowess.
