From the Backyard to the Big Leagues

In 1996, Phoenix Bat founder Charley "Lefty" Trudeau was earning his living by restoring old houses when the Historical Society asked him if he would make some 1860s-style bats on his old lathe. As word and interest about the wooden bats began to spread around the league, Charley's one-time project began to turn into a passion and soon became the Phoenix Bats we know today. Finding its beginnings in producing vintage baseball bats for vintage league players, Phoenix received approval for professional use in 2000, and now you can find their bats being swung by pro players, softball teams, hitting coaches, vintage leagues, and little leaguers alike.
