We like to say that Pillbox Bat Co. started over two decades ago when we were playing little league baseball together. Most games Zak was pitching and Dan was playing shortstop. We made our first bat even while we were in little league. Crafted from a tree limb and painted with house paint. A dozen or so of these homespun bats launched tennis balls and racquetballs in roughly organized home run derby's and pickup ballgames in the neighborhood.
