Buy “The Great Derecho” Bat

Thank you so much for your interest in Tommy’s Derecho Bats. He is currently at capacity and can no longer accept orders. He sold 100 bats! Can you believe it? He’s busy making the bats now!

Follow Tommy’s progress on Facebook!

If you would like to be put on a wait list, please email:

*There are no guarantees that he’ll continue to produce bats. It depends on how much derecho wood we have left and Tommy’s desire to keep making them.

Details we want you to know:

  • $20 of each purchase will be donated to the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation Disaster Relief Fund.
  • Approximately 30″ Long.
  • Made from reclaimed wood from the recent eastern Iowa Derecho storm (various types of wood).
  • Hand-made, imperfect, but made with love. Not for real baseball use. Made with non-dried Derecho wood, so expect cracks as the wood dries over time.
  • Please allow 4-6 weeks to ship (we don’t really know what to expect here). We’ll stay in touch as things develop.
  • The credit card charge will go through One Mission Fundraising (my parents’ company).
  • If you want to pick up your bat in Mount Vernon, please use coupon code “batpickup” to get free shipping. We’ll let you know when your bat is ready.
  • Thank you for supporting me and supporting others in need. May God Bless You!
