The number of maple wood bat companies has increased dramatically this past year. Everyone wants to jump on the maple wood bandwagon and take advantage of the wood bat trend sweeping the country. There are more choices than ever when it comes to selecting a wood bat. Each company claims to be making the best bat on the market today. So how do you decide which company will supply you with one of your most important tools as a player? Do you experiment with a new small company, or purchase your bats from one of the big name companies?
It’s not easy to make a great baseball bat. You not only need the equipment and skill to produce a top of the line bat, but you must be willing to do so consistently. What separates the truly outstanding bat manufacturers from the rest is the willingness to discard a tremendous amount of lumber in order to maintain outstanding quality in each and every bat you produce. We here at Pro Bats have made that commitment. Without this commitment to excellence we could never guarantee our bats to within ½ ounce, and we certainly could not implement our early breakage warranty. Wood bat companies pop up almost every week. It is not physically difficult to make a bat. The hard part is discarding all the lumber that is not suitable for making a quality bat. Forty five to fifty percent of the lumber a comapny receives cannot make a pro quality bat. Much of the wood on a pallet has twisted grain or is heavy. Many companies cannot afford to do that. They over dry the wood to get the weight down and produce bats that have questionable grain. The result is an inferior bat at a low price. The one thing I have learned in this business is that you get what you pay for. We only have one grade of lumbar and that is Pro Stock. Each and every bat is made of the finest wood available. I honestly believe we produce the best bat on the market for the money. Pro quality at an affordable price.
The incredible durability of our bats has proven to be one of our best selling points. Read some of the testimonials on this site to get a feel for the quality that we put into each and every bat. We know that you can buy a less expensive bat, but we honestly believe that when it comes to being cost effective over the long haul, we provide the best bang for the buck on the market today.
Pro Bats has been in business for over eleven years. I formed the company with a promise to myself that I would look at all aspects of the business through the eyes of a player. This was not much of a stretch for me since I have played organized baseball throughout my youth and adult life. I wanted to treat my customers exactly the way I would expect to be treated. Throughout our eleven years of existence, I have never wavered from that philosophy. The personal touch each and every customer gets from the moment they make contact with our company is one of the big Pro Bats advantages. I personally handle each and every transaction. It does not end when you receive your bat. In fact that is just the beginning of what I hope will be a long lasting relationship.
