I have a grandson that will be a major league baseball player in the future. He is a high school senior that just signed a full scholarship with Georgia Tech for baseball. It is very unusual to receive a full ride in baseball. He is 6’5”, 215# with a 93 mph fastball with control.

His mother wanted a display for the bats from the different tournaments he has been in. This is what I came up with out of the scrap pile. Very simple and plain and I hope that this will one day be in his trophy room.

Wanted to show the project, but wanted to brag on the grandson more.

You deserve bragging rights. Keep it up, Grandpa!
