Buy a”The Great Derecho” Bat

Follow Tommy’s progress on Facebook!

Details we want you to know:

  • We have a lot of people on the waiting list and we’ll make bats in the order that they were received. (Please note: Orders could take 3-4 months to ship/deliver, so please be patient.)
  • 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. Since so many people want bats, and there is no way that I can keep making them all myself, my uncle, grandpa, a few of my siblings and my dad have offered to help me. We got a new lathe that will help us be more efficient. Thank you and may God bless you!”
