Home Town Bats started like many of the wood bat businesses… For The Love of the Game.
My name is Ted Nytes and I own and operate Home Town Bats. I am a cabinet-maker by trade and have grown up working with wood all my life. I play on an amateur ball club in Minnesota and have always wanted to turn my own bat. So a few years ago I bought a small hand lathe and began to mess around on it. I finally turned out a nice looking bat and decided to use it in my games. I did well with it.
