B45 Premium Ketel Marte Birch Wood Baseball Bat: PIKE4
Ketel trusts B45 with his birchwood bat needs. No reason for you not to do the same!
This bat is truly crafted for a hitter who would like a balanced feeling bat when they're in the batter's box. The bat has a barrel diameter that measures out to be 2.46" in diameter. This is considered to be a smaller barrel diameter. However, whatever the bat lacks in barrel diameter, it will make up in its balanced feel.
A factor that assists in creating the balanced feel of the bat is the 0.94" handle that is considered to be on the thicker side of wood bat handles. With thick-handled bats, more wood is placed into the handle section of the bat. Since that allows less wood to be in the barrel of the bat, the barrel is much lighter and the bat is easier to swing. And don't forget about the flared knob on this bat that will make it extremely comfortable to hold. Plus, that flared knob gives the bat a big league look to it (as many big leaguers enjoy using bats with flared knobs).
A few seasons back, Ketel used B45 yellow birch bats to collect a .329 batting average, hit 32 homers and get his first All-Star nod. If you want to start flashing glimpses of Ketel in your swing, snag his B45 style of bat today!
Lastly, don't forget that the yellow birch that composes this bat has been tested and it meets all of the standards required of a birch bat to be used in MLB play. It should feature top durability and a hard hitting surface. These factors make it a part of the best line of bats being produced by B45.
B45 extends a generous Thirty (30) Day warranty on this high-quality wood baseball bat. If you purchase this bat from JustBats and it breaks down on you within 30 days from the purchase date, please let the Bat Experts from JustBats know. The Bat Experts will be able to get you the info to make sure you can get in contact with B45 and arrange to get a replacement bat!

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.
