After playing baseball for perennial contenders Oklahoma and Mississippi State, Ben Jenkins made it to the minors, logging time within the Philadelphia Phillies system. And while he never made it to the Bigs, his love for the game never waned. In 2011, Jenkins combined his love of design (he made a name for himself with his firm OneFastBuffalo in Texas) and America’s pastime, by designing bats that looked just as good on their own as they hit on the field. Hand-forged from natural wood like sugar maple, American white ash, and yellow birch, these bats don’t just look great. They’re made to be swung, too.
We always talk about fashion meeting function, but never has that been truer than with this selection of Warstic bats. Hand-forged with ball players in mind, but produced with an eye for detail and minimalist design, these made-in-the-USA bats will look just as great on the diamond as they will hung up on the wall.
