Wooden bat leagues are amateur baseball leagues in the United States that use wood bats instead of bats made of aluminum or composites. Most such leagues play in the summer months, during the traditional break in the academic year, and are approved by the NCAA.

Because professional baseball exclusively uses wood bats—with the exception of some low-level minor leagues that allow approved composite bats to ease young players' transition to wood—these leagues are heavily scouted by Major League Baseball teams, who can determine how well a college prospect can hit with the same bats used in MLB.
