Why A Bat Subscription Makes Sense

Why A Bat Subscription Makes Sense

Baseball is one of America’s oldest games and we have seen it evolve over the years. Analytics and technology continue to change the game. What hasn’t changed is how you get your bats, until now.  Getting a baseball bat or softball bat subscription makes sense because the best bats are expensive, it provides additional flexibility to get a competitive advantage, and a subscription service provides additional services that you won’t find at other retailers. 

Bats are a big investment

I was amazed when I was looking for a baseball bat for my six-year-old and found coach pitch bats that were more expensive than the bat I used my senior year of college. In a highly competitive travel ball environment, you want every legal advantage possible for your kid. The problem is that $350-$500 just isn’t an option or is a real sacrifice for parents especially with all the other expenses associated with travel softball or baseball.

A subscription service makes getting your baseball or softball bats much less of a sacrifice and helps free up your cash for other areas. It makes even more sense if you are getting a new bat every 12-14 months like most travel ball players do.

Flexibility

Golfers get their clubs fitted to give them a competitive advantage. The fitting helps them find that perfect equipment for their swings to give them the best chance of winning.  A bat is not as easy to change as golf clubs which is why we constantly see people put their kids at a disadvantage by holding on to his or her bat that is too short or having to get them a bat that’s too big and hope that they grow into it. Do you really want to spend all that money on your child's travel team to be at a disadvantage because you don’t have the correct equipment? 

By subscribing instead of buying, you now have the flexibility to make sure that your kid has the perfect bat. You no longer have to be stuck with a poor fitting older model when you know the newer model is a hotter, better fitting bat. Subscribing also gives you much more financial flexibility. You don’t have to put out $350-$500 all at once or use a credit card which could negatively impact other areas of financing i.e. a mortgage.  It also gives you the opportunity to use some of that extra money to get extra lessons or additional equipment.

Additional benefits

There are many other benefits to Baseball or Softball Bat Subscription Service.

1. You can get help through the warranty process and a loaner bat if your bat breaks. 

2. Specialist are available to help you find the perfect bat. 

3. There’s no need to keep 20 old bats sitting in your garage collecting dust.

Nuke Lelouche from Bull Durham said it best, “Winning is better than losing”. It is especially awesome when you see your kid go 3 for 3 in a championship game. Subscribing is the best way to get the competitive advantage you need.

Baseball loves its numbers. It all started over 170 years ago and has morphed from simple stats to the more complicated data points we collect today. The hot topics right now are launch angle and exit velocity but an over-looked data point for many hitters is the efficiency of their contact.

I Bought the Wrong Bat

December 11, 2019

Have you ever tried to return a bat after you remove the wrapper? I vividly remember purchasing a bat a few years ago at a major retailer. The associate completed my transaction and when she was handing me my bat looked me directly in the eye and said, “If you take off the wrapper, you will not be able to return the bat.
