Last year my 13 year old son & I took a long weekend to see some new baseball stadiums. We drove to St. Louis to see the Cardinals, Louisville to see the Bats (Reds AAA affiliate) & the Louisville Slugger factory.
We had a great time & I wanted to make something to remember the trip. This combo bat rack & shelf is what I came up with. It is 12” square & made from a piece of maple with walnut for the border & I CNC’d the banner & year on it & filled with colored epoxy.
Every new ballpark we go to, I get him a mini-bat. On this shelf L-R is the Cardinals, customized Louisville slugger and the Louisville Bats. The bobble-head is of Billy Hamilton-who is now with the Reds. The Bats play several blocks from the Louisville Slugger factory & the night we were at the game their souvenir shop didn’t have any mini-bats??? I had to order the bat on the internet & the bobble-head was a give away the night we were there.
Thanks for looking.
