  • Axe Baseball Bat Handle Redesign Leads To More Power, Less Injuries

    Axe Baseball Bat Handle Redesign Leads To More Power, Less Injuries

    Combining an axe and a baseball bat for the heck of it isn’t that far out.  For one, they’re both hand tools that you swing to hit objects with.  The Axe Bat, however, combines the two for a more practical reason: giving the baseball bat an axe handle actually makes it more efficient to use. At least, that’s the claim behind the new bat design, which its creators posit, can deliver more power, enhance grip stability, and create additional rotational [...]
