From vintage leagues, to the Big Leagues
Take a Plant Tour
Interested in booking a tour to see how a bat is made from start to finish? During your approximately 1 hour tour, you'll learn about how the business got started (blame it on a bunch of guys playing baseball in the 1800's!), working with pros, and the process in creating a great bat (including wood selection, computer-aided design, and a trip out on the shop floor for an up-close view of the bat making and finishing process).
Stop in during Phoenix's open tour times or schedule a tour Monday through Friday. All tours are conducted at Phoenix Bats, 7801 Corporate Blvd, Suite E, Plain City, Ohio 43064. The tour fee of $10 per person includes a pre-engraved mini bat to commemorate your visit.
Open Tour Times:
Perfect for parties of 1 person on up! Available to anyone to attend, open tours are conducted Monday and Friday 1:30 pm. Regardless of which day/time, all tours include the same full experience, including bat production. Any cancellations, posted 4 hours prior to tour time, are noted at the end of this section.
No reservation is required or taken for Open Tour times. All who show up, regardless of total number of attendees, get a tour. So, if you arrive 10-15 minutes or less prior to tour time, you are good! Of course, feel free to come a little earlier if you need help ordering a bat. We'll stick around after as well for those interested in purchasing gear, gifts and bats.
Open Tours are not conducted on the following days and the day before and after:
Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas through New Year's Day.
OPEN TOUR CANCELLATION NOTICES:
We at Phoenix Bats always try to do what is best for the sake of our customers and our surrounding community.
Having said that, we have decided to suspend ALL scheduled and open tours as of March 12th 2020, through May 31st 2021. We will re-evaluate and monitor the situation as more information and facts are available, and as the ever evolving situation develops.
This comes in conjunction with the Governor's response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the signing of an executive order declaring a state of emergency in Ohio, and due to the fact that our facility is not conducive for proper social distancing for tours. We want to do our part to minimize the risk of potential exposure to our employees, patrons and their extended families.
We apologize for any temporary inconvenience this may cause you. We continue to monitor the situation closely and make adjustments as needed. Operations will continue on as allowed by the State of Ohio, so never hesitate to contact us for your baseball needs! Please continue checking here for the most up-to-date information.
Thank you for your understanding.
Scheduled Group Tours:
Conducted by appointment with a ten person minimum ($10 per person or $100 payment if less than 10 people), scheduled group tours are typically scheduled for Monday-Friday, with a start time between 9a-5p.
