Recycling in Full Swing

That “crack of the bat” sound brings back memories of our national pastime, but it seems any Major League Baseball game involves at least one broken bat. Most baseball bats are made out of wood, more specifically white ash and maple. Both of these types of lumber provide a lightness and durability that is easily reused.

Almost any material can be reclaimed, reused, or upcycled if you put a little thought into it. Step up to the plate for a fun collection of products and gifts made from recycled baseball bats, a tribute to creativity and resourcefulness.
