A Note From one of our owners about the Beat Cancer Honor Bat:
In late 2017, I lost my mother-in-law to cancer. Prior to this time, I (of course) heard or read about acquaintances who had suffered a loss of friends and/or family. It was easy to empathize...and then return to my cocoon of complacency. But, experiencing what cancer is really like, I could no longer do nothing. Standing on the side lines was not an option. Little did I know this evil disease would soon hit more of those I care about.
With that, I thought "how can I leverage my role at Phoenix Bats for a greater good?" I shared the idea with the President of Phoenix Bats, whose wife is a nurse at The Ohio State University James Cancer Center. Working together, we are proud to introduce our effort to beat cancer: The Beat Cancer Honor Bat -- a personalized full-size bat to honor your friend, family or loved one fighting (or who has fought) the battle against any form of cancer. It's also a neat way to honor those who support that fight every day.
For every Beat Cancer bat we sell $25 of each bat (plus any extra donations in full) will go to cancer research. We invite you to learn more below about our charity of choice, Pelotonia. They have an amazing track record in supporting cancer research. Every dollar we donate through your involvement will go towards making a difference….which is what we set out to do.
Thanks for helping make a difference.

What the heck is "I want to pay extra"?
As 100% of the proceeds from the bat's sale (excluding rush service fees, if applicable, and shipping cost) will be donated by Phoenix Bats to charity, we have included the option to pay more than the stated price of $35.00. This is with no obligation what-so-ever. It's simply a mechanism to raise extra funds for us to donate to Pelotonia.
