Some bat manufacturers rely on sawmills to process their wood. Processing involves harvesting logs, sawing logs to produce billets, and kiln drying billets to an appropriate moisture content level. Sawmills do a good job of processing billets according to “lumber” standards (no knots, checks, splits, etc.).However, typical lumber standards are primarily focused on “appearance grade” and little thought is given to the structural integrity.
To ensure the strength, safety and performance of a wood bat, a baseball bat billet must have exceptionally straight grain, which adds another dimension to typical hardwood lumber standards. The only way to ensure structural integrity is to begin with hand-split billets, rather than sawn billets.
At Leatherstocking Hand-Split Billet Co., we reinvented split billets. We utilize a proprietary grading system that ensures consistency and provides a reliable level of quality throughout all our grades. We offer four grades in Hard Maple and Ash and two grades in Birch and Soft Maple. Visit the Leatherstocking Hand-Split Billet Co. Website for more Grading Details.
