“It didn’t affect us one way or another when it comes right down to the end of the summer,” he said.
For the rest of the year, the Cooperstown Bat Company will be doing a lot of traveling, as well as preparing for a big step forward.
“We’ll be applying for major league on field use,” said Haney.
If accepted, this would mean the Cooperstown Bat Company’s bats would be able to be used in Major League Baseball. Currently the bats are used in high school, college and travel leagues. Should its application be successful, the bats would start being used in spring training of 2014.
“A little more of the same that we had this year,” said Haney, when asked what he’d like to see for next summer.
