The X71 wood baseball bat is the Zinger version of the traditional 271. There is a reason that this is the most common bat in baseball, with the likes of Paul Konerko, Alex Rodriguez, and Prince Fielder swinging this model throughout their respective careers. Those are some of the great power hitters using this medium barrel bat. The misconception of power hitters using large barrel bats is negated by those 3 names - among others. This model is made from a high-density billet which should increase performance and minimize breakage.
Zinger Bat Company was founded in 1998 by Kelly Eastman, a life-long wood worker. He had a passion for baseball that he passed onto his sons. All young ball players themselves, Kelly looked into the techniques of making wood bats for them. Within a few months, he was taking orders from other locals and, as the story goes, Zinger Bat Company had begun.
Realizing the technology was there, he developed a production process and acquired top-of-the-line equipment that was ground breaking for its time. His desire to have nothing but the best product leaving the shop has been instrumental in the great name that Zinger has throughout the ranks of baseball. Since the company’s move to Arizona, Kelly and his wife Charlotte, along with their son Trevor, continue to be great assets to the company as special consultants. We are very grateful to them for all of their support.
