How to Draw a Baseball Bat

Step 1.

Draw a side line from one corner to the other, or as long as you want to draw your bat.

Step 2.

Now you will draw out the entire shape of the bat like you see here, and remember when I said I was going to tell you what the parts where to the bat, here it is; the thickest part of the bat is called the barrel, this is the part of the bat that the batter uses to strike the ball. Players call this area the 'sweet spot'. The bottom of the bat is called the handle, and the top of the bat is called the tip or top. Color a solid band going up the handle of the bat like so.

Step 3.

Before moving to the next step, all you have to do is sketch in the wood grain and then you can move to the next step if there is no guidelines to erase.

Step 4.

Here is the bat when you are all done. Now you can color it in, or draw it in the hands of a player. I hope you had fun guys.
