"John MacDougall knew he could build a better wood bat. A lifelong baseball addict, coach and father of two baseball players (those would be the sons, Ian and Duncan), he was no stranger to broken bats. He's seen maple and ash bats shatter, splinter, crack, split and explode, sometimes after only a few at bats. At $90 a pop (a lot more now, eh?), that hurts and it's not how John believed it had to be. He could have switched to composite wood bats, but being a traditionalist at heart, that just didn't sit right with him. He had a better idea.

MacDougall & Sons Bat Company is located in the high desert of beautiful, Bend Oregon. They handcraft 100% real wood bats that last about 10 times longer than regular all-wood bats. Learn more at
