Northern white ash from Pennsylvania and upstate New York is recognized as the best material for making baseball bats. Throughout the years, baseball bats have been made from many types of wood, including ash, oak, maple and hickory. However, as years went by players found that bats made of ash would hit the ball best. Ash makes a medium-weight bat which allows a batter to swing at the advancing ball quickly. Graded for quality with straight grain being the most important criteria, these billets are suitable for college and all lower levels of play. Billets measure 2- 7/8" in diameter and 37" in length, and, because they have been vacuum-dried to a moisture content of 9-11%, they offer superior strength.


• 2- 7/8" diameter x 37" long

• Vacuum dried

• Fraxinus americana

Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

    Totally Satisfied

    I have purchased 3 of these billets and turned them down for gifts to my family. They were all very happy to get them as they are a baseball family. I personalized the burn label for each of them. All are being used extensively and holding up very well.
