This is my favorite Special edition style. I love the Hornsby color which is a multi-step dye staining process to achieve an exact match on a custom Louisville Slugger bat. This bat has the child’s name on it instead of the players signature. I’ve had then natural color bat made this way but this was a first for the Hornsby color.

What sets the Special Edition apart from the standard Baseball bed is the letters are carved in there. With the darker color, I finish the blank headboard first and then have the letters cut with a CNC router. This exposes the light color ash underneath.

Another special touch we did with this one, customers request, was to use authentic Major League balls for the post, dresser, and nightstand.
