Established in 1999, Old Hickory Bat Company has become one of the top baseball bat manufacturers in the world. After starting in a one car garage, Old Hickory Bat Company has steadily grown from a handful of local players, to over 6500 square feet of manufacturing and showroom space and hundreds of players at the highest level of competition throughout the world.

This means that you don’t have to settle for a bat that was cut 6 months to a year ago; every bat is cut and finished just the way you want it. Every order Old Hickory receives is cut from the same wood and treated with the same care and attention that our Major League players’ bats receive. Hand selected maple and ash from the Northeastern United States and Canada is the primary source of Old Hickory’s wood. Only the highest graded wood is acceptable for use in an Old Hickory bat.

Our extensive sanding and finishing processes enable Old Hickory to thoroughly check for any imperfections. We also adhere to tight dimensional tolerances that ensure consistency from bat to bat and order to order. Every bat that is manufactured by Old Hickory has met all of our high quality standards before being boxed and shipped to your door.
