So where do they get their wood. I don't know I'm sorry to say. I'm going to say Lancaster County, but it really could be almost in any of the other 53 settlements in the state where they harvest their lumber. And, it doesn't really matter anyway since my story is really about producing baseball bats and not the exact location in the state where the lumber might be harvested. My interest in the wooden bat goes way back to when I played baseball as a youth. We didn't have metal bats back then and everyone on the team used the same couple of bats that the coach would bring to the field. When my neighborhood friends would gather to play summer games at the nearby train station or behind my house in the printing company's parking lot, we at times would use a wooden bat that was held together with screws or nails, having been broken numerous times throughout the summer. Back then there were only a few manufacturers of baseball bats.
