Baseball bats

Posted on September 2, 2013 at 2:52pm 0 Comments

I very much like to see bats advertised on here. There are so many that seeing reviews really helps out. I just purchased a bat from a Russian bat maker. Its made out of Beachwood and called a Ya Ya bat. Some of you may have heard of this bat before but I can tell you its as hard as any maple or Baum bat and so far I have had extraordinary luck at the plate with it. There's a video of its strength com[pared to Marucci bat and ya ya was way stronger.

Going to Cooperstown to play baseball 8 thru 12 September 2013. This will be my third adventure there with Legends of Baseball. Fortunately, I will be on the same team with three other guys who I have played with in the past, so this will be another baseball memory.

I will start our first game on the mound on Doubleday and hope I do well! Doubleday Field is very special in our world of baseball.
