Celebrating The Return of Baseball
One week until Opening Day. As baseball fans, it’s the sentence we’ve been longing to hear since the New Year began. To honor our final week without professional baseball being played (Spring Training doesn’t count, sorry), we’re going to spotlight one of the staples of the game – the wood bat. The crack of the bat, along with the smell of freshly cut grass, is an instant reminder that spring is here and summer is right around the corner. Your favorite slugger might be wielding an Axe Bat this season, so let’s dig a bit deeper; what makes the Axe wood bat so unique?
One-sided hitting? Yes, please. Industry-wide, the norm is to hit ‘label up’ to ensure you’re hitting the strongest face of the bat. How many players actually take the time every at-bat to look at what part of the bat they’re hitting on? It’s a small percentage of the baseball population, especially when players consistently roll the bat in their hands before each pitch. Since there’s only one way to hold an Axe Bat, you’ll be hitting on the strongest part of the bat every time. For a maple bat, this is referred to as the face grain.
Axe maple bats are handcrafted from the finest Wisconsin hard maple billets available. Each bat, from handle to barrel, is crafted for quality and performance. Whether it’s an indoor practice session or an outdoor wood league, the Axe L118 Maple is sure to deliver.
