It is a must stop if you are in the area. Enjoyed the tour. Took about 15 minutes. They seemed glad that we stopped.

I'm staying at a campground in Cook's Forest area and picked up the advertisement card for free tours at BWP Bats. I thought it might be cool and planned on buying my grandson a bat for his birthday. When I walked in, the guy acted like it was a pain that I was there. I told him I was interested... More

So, this is a quick fix to start your day of being a tourist. Interesting place; nothing remarkable but one does learn intimately how a baseball bat is made, start to finish. The lathes that actually make the bats are quite impressive; and, then, the human intervention that completes the process is, within reason, interesting. The finished products are quite... More

This place was super far from where we were staying in Cook Forest but we chose several things to do out in Brookville to make the stop worth it. I was surprised to find it extremely small with only 3 employees. It was an interesting visit, the tour guide was nice. We got to see a bat made and all... More

Walked in. No one there. Felt like we were bothering the one guy there. No tour, no nothing. No one could be bothered. We walked out. Waste of time.

This is a VERY quick tour to see how baseball bats are made. You see the forming of bats from start to finish, sort of. Sort of, is because if the worker is not working at that moment you end up with just a quick explanation. Call ahead to see when they shut down for lunch. 10 minute tour. You... More

We stopped here on our way through as a place to stretch before continuing our long drive. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit here, but since it's fairly close to I-80, it was worthwhile--plus it was free. We were there probably a half hour tops and were able to see some interesting parts of bat making. Might... More

BWP Bats are not widely used in Major League Baseball, but they are quality bats and I can honestly say have performed wonderfully for me in hardball games. The facility is deceptively small and the tour starts in a basement workshop, but the skill and craftsmanship that goes into the bats is awesome. We even saw a rack where Major... More

It was a good short stop to get out of the car and learn about bat making. It's a rather short tour, plan ~15 minutes, even with questions. Our son plays neighborhood league baseball, so it was interesting for our family.

For years we have seen this attraction advertised along Route 80 and decided to meet there as a halfway point for family members. Pros: the tour was short, we had no wait, we got to see them personalize the bat my nephew bought on-site, great for most ages, it was FREE. Cons: we learned very little on the tour, little... More
