Established in 2014, the Ritchie Bat Company is committed to providing you with the highest quality custom maple and ash bats at the most affordable prices. When you order a Ritchie bat, you are not only receiving top grade wood, but also a one-of-a-kind bat with customization that is unmatched anywhere in the market and unique to you alone.
All Ritchie Bats are grain compressed (boned) to ensure the hardest hitting surface possible. Every Pro Series maple bat we make is ink dot tested to display the slope of grain and comes from only hand-split billets, meaning that nothing is cut cross grain.
Often, logs that are produced at a sawmill are sawn across the radial and/or tangential slope of grain, weakening the bat and making it vulnerable to dangerous breaks or multiple piece fractures. Because the tangential grain is difficult to see with the naked eye, it is commonly overlooked. When wood is hand-split, it naturally follows the tangential grain instead of forcing the cut with a saw, strengthening the bat and all but removing the chance of a slope of grain failure.
When you receive your order from the Ritchie Bat Company you can rest assured that your bat was made with passion, pride and confidence.

Among the many ways of increasing our customization options, you will now notice a -1, -2 or -3 after the model number on your bat. This number represents the flare option you chose while designing your bat. -1 is no flare (great choice if you like to wrap your bat with a Lizard Skin or any other wrap), -2 means you chose a standard (traditional) flare and -3 is a wide flared knob.
Absolute ENDLESS Color Possibilities!
