Heated Bat Rolling Began With An Experiment
ProRollers started our heated bat rolling process in 2012 during an experiment with a new BBCOR baseball bat which we were testing after it had been rolled the old fashioned way, cold. We found that if we heated up the barrel of the bat prior to rolling it both perpendicular and parallel, it allowed the fibers to stretch even further because they were more pliable when heated.
Don’t Keep Buying New Bats
When the fibers stretch easier, there is less negative stress on the walls of the bat, thus increasing the overall durability. Also, since the fibers are more flexible, there is less cracking and a longer life span. There is no need to buy a new $400 bat every three months. Heated bat rolling provides the benefits of life span and performance. The Proper Method Makes The Difference
We’ve read an article claiming that heated bat rolling is detrimental because the fibers shrink back to their original form. We disagree. The bat gets warm from the constant pressure and friction and we roll the bat long enough in the machine to ensure proper break in. Either the person that wrote that article never rolled a bat, or they do not roll them in the machine long enough to properly break them in.
Flat Paint Schemes Need The Heat
Heated bat rolling does no damage to the graphics or details on the bat. Some manufacturers are using flat paint schemes which cause the bat to practically require heat to get a proper break in because it cannot be rolled as thoroughly without first heating it. This paint scheme is becoming more common in the mid-upper tier bats, so if they are not getting heated, you are not getting the full break in experience.
