Beautiful Exotic Wood Trophy/Warm Up Bats
Over the years we have experimented with many species of wood to find better performing
baseball bats. During that time we have come across some wood species that may not be
suitable for baseball, but they make stunningly beautiful bats. Some of these species are
extremely rare in the sizes needed to make bats, and others are too heavy, too light, or have poor
impact strength properties. But some have gorgeous wood patterns and colors that make them
popular for trophy bats. Some are extremely heavy, which makes them ideal for a team warm up
Pistachio Wood
Mountain Mahogany (Cercocarpus ledifolius)
Pistachio Wood is remarkable in that you never really know what colors you will get once it is
made into a bat. There are hues of green and purple but most common is the dark brown
heartwood in contrast to the yellow sapwood. Most Pistachio Trees are the result of grafting so
you will get sudden changes in wood color as you see above.

This is an amazing tree. The trees large enough to produce bat sized trunks are several hundred
years old. The wood has reddish-brown heartwood with swirls of orange, red, and dark brown.
The wood is extremely hard with a Janka rating of 3230 and very heavy. This is not a game
bat...plenty hard and tough, but the weight is over twice that of White Ash. The above bat you
see is 33.25 inches long and it weighs 64 ounces, or four pounds even. This wood makes
extraordinarily beautiful bats. Ideal for gifts, award/trophy bats, and display bats.

And of course we can personalize it almost any way you want.

Mountain Mahogany is an evergreen shrub/tree that grows from 6-25 feet tall in the mountains of
the Southwestern United States. Mountain Mahogany forms an important ground cover on dry
windswept mountain slopes where the harsh conditions allow few other species to survive.
