Today, we’re excited to announce a new partnership with Axe Bat. Are you familiar with Axe? They’re a family owned company near Seattle obsessed with making a better baseball bat. In fact, their mission is to make the world’s best bat for your swing. They’ve designed a handle, which they’ve patented, that looks very much like what you might see on a common ax, but has been engineered to support the biomechanics of the swing. Not only does it offer a better grip, it allows hitters to swing faster with more barrel control. Over time, that means harder, more consistent contact.
Lots of MLB players already have switched to this style. Mookie Betts and George Springer are two of the more prominent, but more than 100 others have used it in games since 2015. Additionally, most of the top 25 college baseball teams are using Axe Bat’s Speed Trainers for improving bat speed in their player development programs.
In partnering with Axe Bat, we will have the opportunity to demo all of their new game and training products, participate in their bat-fitting sessions to fit hitters to an optimal bat and handle type, and receive exclusive discounts on Axe Bat game and training products year round.
This is an exciting partnership for us as it aligns with our view of where the game is headed and how best to develop players using the latest tools and technologies.
