Buy a”The Great Derecho” Bat

Follow Tommy’s progress on Facebook!

Details we want you to know:

  • Please be patient after you order. We are not yet sure how quickly we will be producing bats.
  • Bats cost $100. Tommy will donate $20 from each bat purchase to the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation Disaster Relief Fund.
  • Bats are approximately 30″ long.
  • Made from reclaimed wood from the recent eastern Iowa Derecho storm on August 10, 2020. (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.
  • A note from Tommy: “Thank you for being interested in my story. I hope I can keep making bats, but I am 12 years old and my parents won’t let me drop out of the 6th grade. 🙂 So we’ll see what happens. May God Bless You!”
