DOVE TAIL HISTORY
Dove Tail Bat Company has been in the wood industry for over 40 years. It began when they developed and grew Dove Tail Cabinetry and Designed Living, their custom-cabinetry and kitchen showroom business. During that time their youngest son played baseball in high school and college, and would complain about the quality of the bats he was using. The first bat their son made was from maple stock planned for a set of table legs. That was in 2005. Over the next 8 years they sold their bats to their sons college and professional teammates as well as adult men’s leagues around the U.S. 2014 was Dove Tail Bats debut year in the big leagues followed by 2015 when the Kansas City Royals won the World Series in which 70% of the runs scored were from a Dove Tail Bat. Most recently in 2019, Pete Alonso set the current Rookie Home Run record hitting 53 home runs with a Dove Tail Bat and was named the Rookie of the Year as a result of this.

WOOD BAT LIFE SPAN
Your wood bat can last from one swing to hundreds of swings. The biggest factors that determine this are 1-Where the ball hits your bat and 2-Quality of wood in the bat you buy and the care you give it.
When you are initially beginning to hit with wood bats don’t be surprised if you break quite a few! With aluminum and composite bats a missed hit taken off the handle or at the end of the bat doesn’t mean much, but with wood bats it may lead to a broken bat. Our training bat is designed to help you with this learning curve. When used in practice and with your T work, this bat will train you to hit the sweet spot more consistently by giving you an audible sound when the ball is hit incorrectly. See our You Tube video for more information. It takes some practice but with work you’ll become a more consistent hitter and will find yourself breaking fewer bats.
As you are practicing remember that how you hold your bat is very important. Make sure you are hitting with the Dove Tail Bat label either up or down so you are making contact with the strongest part of the bat. This ensures that you are hitting with the strongest wood grain for the best success.
Inexpensive bats very often are just that-cheap bats made from less than quality wood. All our bats at Dove Tail Bat Co. are made from pro stock wood with good grain quality. Be sure to store your wood bat in an area that does not expose the wood to extreme hot or cold temperature. The trunk of your car in the summer or your unheated garage in the winter can cause unnecessary stress to the wood fibers in your bat making it prone to breakage with a just slightly less than perfect hit.
Never throw your bat or hit anything other than a ball with it. Wood baseball bats are not meant to be thrown and doing so can alter the integrity of the wood, causing it to break the next time you hit a ball. In addition, taking a ball off the handle or end of the bat can have the same effect. Hitting a ball anywhere other than the sweet spot weakens the integrity of the wood and may cause your bat to break on future hits, even if it is hit properly the next time.
