It's unbelievable. We're seeing eight to 10 bats break every game. Guys are coming back saying they hit the ball on the sweet spot and it still broke." This quote caught our President, Lynn C. Thompson's attention. It's from an article in the Los Angeles Times describing how frequently baseball bats break and nearly injure the players in major league games. The article chronicled the debate currently raging among players over which bat is better, those made of ash, which is lighter and slightly flexible, or those made of maple which is heavier and stiffer. As he read, Lynn began to suspect there might be a market for a baseball bat that just couldn't be broken. What kid, let alone an adult, wouldn't want an unbreakable bat? Now Cold Steel is proud to offer you our first forays into the manufacturing of athletic equipment, the Brooklyn Smasher® and the Brooklyn Crusher&trade.
