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.

What’s the meaning behind the logo you ask? The company name is Dove Tail Bats, LLC and it has the Holy Spirit dove because they are a Christian based company. They were happy after designing their logo to learn that DTB in Spanish is translated to “Dios te bendiga”, which translated to English means “God Bless You.”
