How to Retape a Bat?


When your grip or tape on your bat gets old it is nice to retape it. First mark where your current tape is on the bat. Then you can remove the old tape or grip. Make sure you clean the area where you are going to be taping so that you have a smooth surface to work with. Before you wrap your bat you will need to choose the tape you want to use. Every player likes a different style and type of tape. This part is up to you. Now you are ready to tape your bat. Sit down and put the bat between your legs. Unroll some of your tape and begin placing it on your bat. Start by putting is the end of the tape just below the knob at a slight angle. Now you can wind the tape down the bat keeping tension until you have reached your mark and then cut the tape. Wrap a piece of tape around your top and bottom edge smoothing it out to get a good seal. Once you have finished you are ready for batting practice or the big game.
