Cooperstown bats major league bound


“That would be awesome,” said Jake Horth, head bat turner at the Cooperstown Bat Company, when asked how it would feel to see one of his bats used in a major league game. “That’s basically as high as you can get.”

Haney describes his family as a baseball family and expressed a love for his job.

“I make baseball bats. That’s like the coolest thing ever,” said Haney.

A similar sentiment was expressed by Mark Hoge, who has been working at the Cooperstown Bat Company since 1991.

“I don’t feel like I work anymore,” said Hoge.

To celebrate getting approved for on-field use, the Cooperstown Bat Company has put all of its playing models on sale at 20 percent off. Haney said that this promotion will last until the end of February.
