Visit a young man in Wyoming County who actually crafts his own baseball bats.  Pat Conboy is a high school student who plays baseball.  Pat wanted to experiment using different bats, so he decided to make them instead of buy them.  Since his father owns a lumber mill, he had an abundance of wood.  So Pat studied different techniques and decided to create his own bat on a hand lathe. The results are amazing.

To contact Pat or place an order for a bat, please email him at
