I’m an engineer, a woodworker, and still love playing baseball. When the league I play in switched to all wood bats, it was the best excuse to buy myself a lathe and start making bats again.
The feeling of joy of turning, sanding, and finishing each bat I made came right back to me after years of not making any. It provided more satisfaction than pretty much anything I did in the office at my day job.
Buy a custom baseball bat from me and help support a local custom bat maker.
