The Bat Vault

Every Bat Tells a Story!

The Bat Vault

Step into our hallowed Bat Vault to see more than 3,000 original bat models created by some of the game’s greatest and most legendary players. Our oldest documented bats in the Vault are 100 years old! From Ted Williams to Babe Ruth, our Bat Vault contains unique treasures for baseball fans that can’t be seen anywhere else.

During a Bat Vault experience, you’ll get the chance to dive deeper into the stories of the players who swung our bats and hold different models.

Want to step into the Bat Vault? Check out our All-Star Experience which takes you on a behind-the-scenes journey around the factory and the vault!
