Thank you so much for your interest in Tommy’s Derecho Bats. He is currently at capacity. He has sold 113 bats! Can you believe it? He’s busy lathing them now! It’s possible he’ll continue to make more. The best way to stay in-the-know is to follow along on his Facebook page.
We can make no promises that Tommy will keep producing bats, but if you would like to be put on a wait list, please complete the form below:Name *FirstLastEmail *Comment or Message *Submit
Details we want you to know:
- Bats are $100, with $20 of each purchase being donated 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!”
