Come see a wood bat being made on the biggest, baddest bat-making machine anywhere.
We’ve got to admit, it’s pretty cool to see a piece of wood turned in to a baseball bat, sometimes to be used by a pro and seen on TV. We see it every day. Now it’s your turn! Spend an hour with Phoenix Bats and watch it happen up close.
Take in some baseball history, handling replica 100+-year-old bats and find out how this all ties in to our beginning (we blame it on a bunch of guys playing baseball in the 1800s) - Learn the basics for making a great wood bat (it starts with the wood!) - Hear about the pros - and get your hands on their bat - See the bat design process (we draw them up on our computer) - Go out on the shop floor and see bats made right in front of you (it's done on the most advanced machine anywhere in the world...and we're the only bat maker that has it!) - Check out how colors are added (and why the pink bats?!) - Watch a bat being written on with a laser (okay, it's a little smaller beam than a light saber, but still very cool). Tours are very interactive, so come on out, learn a little and have some fun.
