There are two types of order bat systems!
Ballpark.com's order bat is"Complete custom order bat (full order bat)"When,"JB Custom Order Bat"There are two types.
Each has its own characteristics, so we will introduce it in two parts. First of all, from the "complete custom order bat (full order bat)"!
Completely custom order bat (full order bat)
※What is a full order bat? A bat that can be ordered in detail, such as bat material, length, weight, balance, grip end, grip size, color, and material appearance.
Part 1. Selected bat materials
Completely bespoke Full-order bats. Only two types of bat materials are selected and applied. "Blue Tamo", which is said to be the king of bats, and the highest quality "North American maple"is.
"Ao Tamo" (also known as Ash) is the highest quality bat material in Japan. It's reasonably hard, so it's easy to play, and it's reasonably viscous, so it has a "bend".
And it is hard to break and light. The characteristics of this material are very well matched to the humid climate of Japan, so many professional baseball players use the "Blue Tamo" bat.
Among the blue taros, the "blue taro" that grew up in the eastern and Pacific sides of Hokkaido is said to be the king of bats. The region is extremely cold in winter, but it is surprisingly dry with little snow. This climate created the "King of Bat, Ao Tamo".
Although "Ao-Tamo" grows in other areas of Japan, it has a softer characteristic than that in Hokkaido. It has the same flexibility and excellent viscosity. The feel of "Ao Tamobat" also varies depending on where it grows, but it is definitely the "highest quality" as a bat material used in Japan.
It's a bit off topic, but in fact, the one that is mainly used in Major League Baseball is "White Ash" (aka American Ash). It is a kind of duck, but it is a bat that is considerably harder than Japanese blue duck because of the influence of wood grown in the dry area.
Former major leaguer Matsui changed the bat from the originally used blue taro to white ash. In the dry climate of North America, "bat bending" cannot be expected. Therefore, by using hard white ash without "warping", it seems that the ball has come to fly with a feeling of "gatsun".
"Maple" is known as maple in Japan. It is a maple tree. It is said to be a material located between white ash and blue taro, especially "North American maple""More flexible than white ash" "Strong and harder to hit than blue taro"It is said that.
As it is light and hard to break, it has excellent durability and the hitting surface does not dent too much. Even in the major leagues of the white ash powerhouse, Barry Bonds mass-produced home runs with maple bats, and the popularity of maple bats increased at once.
In fact, Matsui later switched from White Ash to "Maple". Many major leaguers now have maple bats.
Part 2. Can be made with the same mold as the bat currently used
I want to order with the same mold as the bat that I have been using for a long time, but with different materials!
Meeting such demands is one of the features of the completely custom-made full-order bat. If you send the bat in use as a sample bat, we will trace the bat and manufacture the same type of bat.
Part 3. Various grip shapes and body colors
