Florence Freedom Have New Official Bat
The Florence Freedom will have a new bat to swing this summer, after announcing that the team has come to an agreement with B45 to become the “official bat” of the Freedom for the 2015 season.
“We are very excited to have B45 supplying the Florence Freedom with bats this summer,” Freedom manager Dennis Pelfrey said. “They are one of the best bat companies—if not the best—to work with. Their product is top of the line in the industry and their company is driven by former players, which enhances their ability to make bats for the player. The B45 bat in the hands of the Freedom players this summer is very powerful combination and should lead to an exciting offensive summer!”
Based in Quebec, Canada, B45 is known for quality and innovation in the wood baseball bat industry. Through years of collaboration among their staff's forest engineers and professional players, B45 offers the finest bats made throughout the North America and the world. Their raw material, Northern Quebec Yellow Birch, possesses extraordinary physical characteristics.
Based on game experience and laboratory testing, B45 bats perform consistently better than bats made from either maple or ash. Hard like maple and with flexible wood fibers like ash, B45 bats have a significantly lower breakage rate enhancing hitting performance, lowering overall cost and adding a measure of safety to the game.
