I am an avid baseball player and play in multiple wood bat baseball leagues every summer. I have struggled for some time to find a good bat to use. I have found that a lot of that bats I find in stores like Dicks Sporting Goods, and Sports Authority sell really cheaply made bats, and break very easily.
So I started to look around online and found this bat maker called Cooperstown Bats Company located in upstate Cooperstown, NY. I was a bit hesitant at first to order a bat online. I usually like to get a feel for the bat in the store so I can see if it’s something I will like. I have had such poor luck in the stores so I bought one online and had it shipped to me.
The bat came about a week later, and I was anxious to open it up. I opened up the box and was very impressed with what I pulled out. The bat I ordered had a red handle, and black barrel. It was made exactly how it was portrayed online.
When I picked it up the bat it was weighted very nicely too. Not too much weight on either the top or the bottom. I took it outside to take some dry swings with it, and I instantly fell in love with it. I couldn’t wait to use it in my game later that night.
That bat lasted me an entire summer, and hope it can last another this upcoming baseball season. Even when I didn’t square up the ball, or hit it too far off the end, or on the handle, the bat withstood the test. I must say that this is a very high quality baseball bat. I recommend to my friends every chance I get. A few of them have ordered one and have not been disappointed yet.
Another nice thing about the Cooperstown Bat Company is that they also sell display bats, or gift bats you could call them. Bats where you can get your own name, number, and even signature on the bat if you wanted. I ordered one for my cousin for Christmas, and he loves it. He has it hanging up on his wall. Cooperstown Bat Company makes a great product, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to buy a wood baseball bat.
