It’s the start of the traveling baseball winter training up the icy midwest and our friend Jaxon (U13) gave his new bat warmer a spin for his first winter batting practice up in the twin cities of Minnesota. Jaxon’s dad shot some photos & videos during the evening.
“About an hour before practice, we heated up the warming pack in the mic for like 5,6 minutes. I packed it into the bag. It was warm but not too hot. Then I zipped in my bat, packed my gear and we headed out to pick up some new batting gloves. I scored a sweet blue pair at Dick’s, tested some other gear and then we went to practice. When I took out my bat at BP, it was nice and warm. First swings were awesome. No stinging hands – just smooth contact. The other guys are already wondering where I got it. Thanks Brian! – Jaxon G, Woodbury MN

Not even temps dipping down into the 40’s could stop a hot Kansas City lineup on Wednesday night.
Johnny Cueto bounced back from a tough outing against the Blue Jays and pitched a gem on a chilly Missouri night. The Royals’ rally in the 5th inning was a perfect display of what makes the hottest lineup in the MLB so great. Their aggressive approach at the plate with a laser focus on making contact have the team up 2-0 in the World Series against the Mets whose young and insanely talented rotation just can’t seem to strike out the KC hitters when it matters. Timely rallies and solid starting pitching have the Royals in control as the series heads back to New York.
While these pros have the advantage of heated dugouts, the best batting glove technology and new bats whenever needed, cold weather games and practices can be brutal for the every day ball player. At Pyroflite, we want to provide youth and adults with the option of a warm bat on these cold days. When temps drop, your bats get cold, your hands start buzzing with every swing and being aggressive at the plate gets really difficult. No one wants to worry about pain while they’re having fun. The batwarmer keeps a bat at recommended temperatures which not only helps get rid of that pesky bat sting but it protects your bat from damage.
