The Harwich Mariners of the Cape Cod League broke the team home run record for a season. The old record was 59 homers in 1981 using aluminum bats. The new record was with wooden bats ,60 homers.With the last game of the season tonight,August 7,2012 there is a possibility of a season total of 64 homers in 44 games. Barnstable Bats were a part of the home run record setting season. Tom

One of the UMASS Lowell wooden bat engineers and testers was visiting yesterday. Learned a bit from him and he liked what he saw on the show room racks. "Very nice stuff".

Thanks for the bats they are awesome. You really used some good wood!!! Those bats are really solid and durable, plus the pop off of them are nice.

Comment by Joe Astengo III on June 13, 2012 at 6:22pm

the one i'm using is still in one piece! i've shared it with a couple of team mates. it swings balanced. it's a 33, but feels like a 32, makes for a quick bat for me. makes a solid sound when good contact is made. we like it a lot. thanks again, joe
