For Boston Red Sox fans there is a business in Jefferson County that will always hold a special place in their hearts. BWP Bats will forever be tied to a great moment in World Series History. Some Sox fans call it, “The place that made the bat that broke “The Curse of the Bambino.”” Boston held a 3-0 lead in the series. A home run off the bat of Johnny Damon in the first inning helped to win Game 4 for the Red Sox to secure the series sweep. The Red Sox won the World Series for the first time since 1918, which ended the curse that was supposed to have been inflicted on the team when the Red Sox sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees in 1919.
BWP Bats uses Pennsylvania hardwoods to make high quality custom baseball bats in their factory just off I-80’s Reynoldsville exit. Visitors can take a free bat factory tour and see how a bat is made from start to finish. Any name or logo can be engraved to personalize bats making them a great gift.
There is a long list of major and minor league players that will step in the batter’s box this year with a BWP baseball bat in their hands. In MLB, Miguel Sano of the Minnesota Twins is a slugger swinging the BWP logo that you might want to keep an eye on. So the next time you’re at the ball park enjoying a game, make sure to look for the iconic BWP Bats logo at the plate.
