Depending on whom you talk to, baseball's origination can be traced to France, Canada or Cooperstown, New York where a man named Alexander Cartwright usually takes the credit for inventing the game. Any way you tell the story, baseball always started with the same key ingredients; a ball and a big wood bat. Phoenix Bats embraces the history of America's pastime, not only by supplying the purity of wood bats that are made with the best quality and prices, but also celebrating this sport's originators by offering an entire line of vintage bats.
Phoenix Bats offers a wood bat for every era of this game's golden ages. Before baseball was making rules about the shape and size of wood bats, there were unique bats that offered distinctive knobs and handles. Like the "mushroom knob" which acted as a weighted balance to this big piece of lumber or the Lajoie with its double knob to force any hitter to choke up. Even replicas from the likes of Robinson and Shoeless were big honking pieces of wood! Whether these vintage wood bats are being purchased for use in a vintage league or being added to a room full of baseball keepsakes, Phoenix Bats has a selection that is second to none. Free engraving on any style of vintage wood bats can be complimented by custom artwork. These vintage wood bats will bring you back to the glory days of America's greatest game, and only Phoenix Bats offers the breadth of custom designs that are right out of baseball's history books.
Please note: due to a change in finishes for vintage bats and for greater historical accuracy, we no longer fill in the engraving on any vintage bat.
