For baseball fans the crack of a wood bat, connecting with the ball in the sweet spot is bound to bring back nostalgic memories of summers past. The sound of a breaking bat may be just as nostalgic, but less gratifying, at least for the hitter.
"Learning to hit with wood is a skill that takes time and adds up to a lot of broken bats," said Richard Neely, president of AABC. "Reintroducing Baum's composite wood bats for AABC league play preserves the tradition of wood bat play, while offering players a virtually indestructible bat."
Baum Enterprises was recently purchased by Ben Boulware, a former pro-baseball player, and moved to Scottsdale Arizona, where the original composite wood bat design is still being produced.
"Keeping true to the original design of the composite wood bat invented by Steve Baum in 1993 is essential to making Baum Bats the best in the game," says Boulware. "As a former pro-player I know how important it is to have a bat as strong as you."
American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC) strives to enlarge and advance the scope of amateur baseball by stimulating interest and competition and to provide a sound, experienced organization to assist and educate local groups in obtaining the maximum health and citizenship values.
