We update inventory and availability on the Web site several times a day as inventory positions change shipping hundreds and hundeds of bats.

Limited quantities available. Prices subject to change without notice. Like we say, if it's on the site, it's in the warehouse -- just SOMETIMES it might have some other player's name on it! If you snooze, you lose, so ORDER YOURS NOW!
