a SabreCat bat

We had a wooden bat made for Michael’s 15th birthday this weekend. How can he be 15??? 🙂

One of the teams Michael plays on (Canton Terriers-16U team) recommended SabreCat Bats  for a good, quality, wooden bat.

We really enjoy supporting small, local businesses when we can. It was cool to be able to watch them make the bat from beginning to end. 🙂

Michael’s bat is made from ash wood, 33″ long, and 30 oz. weight.

Thanks to Ohio HB-59, he’s able to try out for Sandy Valley’s team, too. Here he is, trying out his new bat that’s just a couple hours old!
