John MacDougall knew he could build a better wood bat. A lifelong baseball addict, coach and father of two baseball players (those would be the sons, below), he was no stranger to broken bats. He's seen maple and ash bats shatter, splinter, crack, split and explode, sometimes after only a few at bats. At $90 a pop, those broken bats were starting to add up. He could have switched to composite wood bats, but being a traditionalist at heart, that just didn't sit right with him. He had a better idea.
John started to build the perfect bat from scratch, testing various woods until he settled on true hickory and hardened birch. He then perfected a patented design and machining process to create a bat that's stronger, harder and more durable than any all-wood bat out there. The really cool side effect? Better performance!
