Johnston Named Preferred Supplier For Baseball Bats

Johnston Industries, Columbus, Ga., announced that its Composites Division has been designated as a preferred supplier of composite reinforced fabrics for use in a new type of wood composite bat.

Baum is a leading worldwide maker of wood composite baseball bats that hit, feel and look exactly like professional wood bats and outlast wood 200-500 to one. According to the company, due to concerns for player safety, Baum's The Crack is Back® bat is poised to make inroads in the market for high-tech aluminum bats, which are known for their longer hitting distance.

"Major League Baseball has instructed Baum Research and Development to walk a fine line by creating a durable bat while allowing it to break at the upper limits of thick-handled Major League wood," said Steve Baum, president of Baum ResearchandDevelopment.
