ABO Baseball: The Life and Times of a Bat Manufacturer, Trevor Oakes

ABO Baseball

In this special bonus podcast, Manny and L.A. sit down with Trevor Oakes, the man behind the up and coming bat company, ABO Baseball.

ABO Baseball owner Trevor Oakes stumbled upon bat-making by necessity. After joining an amateur baseball league, he realized that the most important tool on a baseball field, the bat, is both expensive and shocking fragile.

Each time you break a bat, you have to dole out $150-$200 dollars for a good replacement. So, Trevor took it upon himself to make his own custom bats.

Generating interest from his teammates, Trevor decided that perhaps this was a path worth exploring. From there, ABO Baseball was born.

ABO produces the best maple, ash and birch bats in a wide variety of styles and finishes using only inspected premium wood. All bats can be customized to suit every player’s needs and preferences. For the full experience, visit the shop to see your bat being made specifically for you.
