The Bat Man

 


My latest story for Smithsonian.com is online.  It’s a brief summary of the history of bats used by major leaguers told through the eyes of a Louisville Slugger representative who has been delivering bats to players for nearly three decades.

It’s at Baseball’s Bat Man.

More than a decade ago, I toured the Hillerich & Bradsby plant in Louisville to write what was then one of a series of stories on how iconic items are crafted.

That story “Feel Good Wood” can be found on my website.
