WE ONLY USE HAND-SPLIT MAPLE FOR EVERY GAME BAT!
SELECT GRADE MAPLE is our high grade hard maple. We do it old school too! All of the wood for our bats is selected from hand-split stock - the same way they did it in the old days. Why is this important? It's all about getting the straightest grain possible. Nowadays, many wood providers use large saw equipment to cut lumber, producing high yields but also cutting across the face or tangential grain. This leads to poor slope of grain and breaking baseball bats. Hand-split, lumber naturally follows the tangential grain, strengthening the bat and eliminating the chance of slope of grain failure. That's why each Pillbox bat is crafted from hand-split billets, creating consistently stronger bats that are safer to use and longer lasting.
CUSTOM LASER ENGRAVING
Even if your nickname isn't as epic as Hercules you can still put it on a bat! We won't judge! Each Pillbox game bat comes with free custom laser engraving.
DROP WEIGHT & CUPPING
DROP WEIGHT INDICATES HOW MANY OUNCES LESS THEN THE LENGTH IS THE FINAL WEIGHT OF THE BAT. SO A 33in BAT WITH A WEIGHT OF 30oz WOULD BE A STANDARD DROP 3. WE ARE EXACTING IN OUR STANDARDS FOR DROP WEIGHT ON EACH PILLBOX BAT. CHOOSE FROM 0-5 DROP WEIGHT.
CUPPING IS DONE TO THE END OF THE BAT, IF YOU CHOOSE, TO CUT WEIGHT AND TO PRODUCE A MORE BALANCED BAT.

Wood bats break! It's just the nature of the game. Hitting a baseball at a very high speed can cause a bat to break for many reasons. For this reason we don't offer a warranty on any normal game use.
If you received bat that you think has an issue or your bat breaks at any time and you think that it was caused because of a flaw in the lumber or our manufacturing process please reach out. We'll make it right.
