Ash, hickory and maple are the three different types of wood that make up a baseball bat from Hoosier Bat Company. Maple is used for the bat’s barrel, hickory for the hitting area and ash for the handle. Three woods are pieced together in a finger-like pattern and they are known for their durability. This design was patented by former New York Yankee scout David Cook. Who is now the owner of the Indiana business called Hoosier Bat Company. Tours of the Valparaiso, Indiana factory are available with advanced notice. All visitors must be over age 6, and large groups are welcome.
