B45 B-1 Birch Wood Baseball Bat: B45B1
Get a bat with high-quality birch wood at an affordable price when you shop for a B-1!
When B45 makes their birch wood bats for professional players, they have to work to meet a number of specific preferences for those players' bats. Due to the nature of working with a material like wood, there are situations where a certain piece of wood cannot meet the preferences of a professional due to aesthetic blemishes, wrong specs or other minor imperfections (not related to wood quality). In these situations, B45 takes these incomplete bats and completes their construction. Then they paint them black and slap the B45 logo on them so that they can be B-1's.
These bats are great if you are looking for a high-quality birch wood bat, but are not in need of a specific turn model. A B-1 could be made from any professional turn model that B45 cuts. And once B45 determines that a bat will be a B-1, they do not include the turn specifications on the bat. Because of that, an order of a B-1 could deliver a balanced or end-loaded baseball bat. To put it bluntly, the purchase of a B-1 bat is a "grab bag" option when regarding the bat's turn.
However, you can rest easy because no matter the cut of bat that is delivered to you, you can know that your B-1 is going to be made from a high-quality piece of birch wood.

About the Brand
Back in 2004, forest engineers from Québec City, Canada, believed that Yellow Birch would make exceptional baseball bats. They joined their knowledge with the experience of professional baseball players to handcraft the first ever bat made out of Yellow Birch, wood that possesses extraordinary physical characteristics.
Laboratory and game situation testing then proved that B45 Yellow Birch bats were giving baseball players a good swinging feeling and broke significantly less than other types of bats. Hard like maple and flexible as ash, B45 bats have significantly lower breakage rate enhancing hitting performance, lowering overall cost, and adding a measure of safety to the game.
Still based in Québec City, Canada, B45 is more than ever known for its quality and innovation in the wood baseball bat industry. Through years of collaboration among our staff's forest engineers and professional players, B45 offers the finest bats made throughout North America and the world.
Approved for professional play since almost a decade, B45 Yellow Birch bats are still proudly handcrafted by former pro players who know the ins and outs of the game and the importance of swinging a quality bat. Whether you are playing in the Show or your Sunday morning league, our bat makers will handcraft your bat with the same passion and precision that will end up being the right product for you.
In 2015, B45 moved to a new ownership group led by former Major League pitcher Eric Gagné. With the help of new brand ambassadors like All-Star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy, and young pitcher Phillippe Aumont, the company is growing faster than ever, on both professional and amateur levels. Everyone in the company is driven by a renewed energy and so are our new Believers.
