ABOUT ABO BASEBALL BATS

Since the first baseball game there have been baseball bats. Most bats used in the first game were flat planks and other odd variations. Round bats quickly gained approval and in time there were regulations about baseball bats. Many different types of wood have been used over the years in the game. Hard Maple and Yellow Birch are two very popular wood types and ABO Baseball proudly hand crafts these two varieties.

T110

T110

This model is a basic turn model, it features a 2.5" barrel and a 1"handle diameter. The T110 model is lighter than most models the weight is distributed throughout the bat with a slow taper. This is a perfect model turn for players that are swinging wood bats for the first time or for contact hitters who want a faster bat speed

T271

This model turn is the most common turn that we do amongst players. This is similar to the T110 with a 2.5" barrel and a 15/16" handle. The main difference is the taper is a quicker transition defining the barrel more. This model has a slightly more end loaded feel. This model is good for both contact and power hitters.

T271
T243

T243

This turn model has the biggest dimensions with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter and a 29/32" handle diameter. The T243 has a fast taper and creates a large barrel and a thin handle, this results a top heavy bat. This makes for a lot more power for more experienced players. There is more mass in the barrel on this model and is preferred by power hitters for the long ball.

BI13

This turn model is similar to the T271 with a 2.5" barrel diameter and a 15/15" handle diameter.The main difference between the I-13T and the T271 is the taper is more extreme, this gives it an even more end load feeling. the I-13T is popular with the power hitters looking for more barrel mass.

CUSTOM

CUSTOM

Custom turn will be what the player wants as a specific turn ie: pick a variant from any model and I can match via picture or message sent from customer. This doesn’t mean that the option has to be online, just a custom turn option and then a comment/notes subject box to explain model.

FULLY FLARED

FULLY FLARED

This flare acts as a counter weight in the swing providing more whip. Also comfort on the palm of the hand.

COMFORT GRIP

Before making bats I used to tape a ring around the bat between my ring and pinky finger at the knob. This applied comfort and less pressure on the palm of my hand allowing me to have a looser grip through my swing. Now making my own bats I applied this same ring but cut from the wood. This alleviates the pressure on the bottom hand giving relief to the nerves that can be damaged. Also this is a great feature for a 2 strike approach allowing the player to choke up on the bat while still have support behind the hand like having a knob in place.

This is a new innovation by ABO Baseball Inc. and yes it is patent pending! We are very proud of this innovation.

Showing this option to Major League players during spring training there was a lot of interests with some even ordering the grip in their custom bats.
