Father's Day 2017 - Brad Sparks got a lathe for Father's Day from his wife Libby. After playing baseball for over 20 years, Brad wanted to give back to the sport. He made his first bat from furniture grade maple, it weighed 46 oz. Needless to say, some adjustments were made, a love affair began, and a business was born.
Using his advanced degree in the sciences, Brad researched wood species, densities, and grain straightness. He created a thorough process where each bat is handcrafted from only the highest
quality maple or ash.
Located in Fort Collins, Colorado; Big Bear Bat Co. is quickly becoming the next premier baseball bat company, and attended the 2018 Winter Baseball Meetings to showcase the Big Bear Bat Co. vision.
