Maine Buoy Bats

While MP and the kids were exploring the Yarmouth Clam Festival, CP#2 pointed out a brightly colored booth. “Look at all the buoys,” he said, tugging on MP’s hand. Upon closer inspection, we learned that the buoys were in fact baseball bats. CP#2 was enthralled. He grabbed a Buoy Bat and asked MP to pitch to him. The beauty of the bat is the nice, wide sweet spot. If CP#2 had his way, we would have stayed at the Buoy Sports booth for hours (though several unsuspecting passers-by were hit by foam balls).

These super cool bats are the brainchild of Buoy Bill Page, and his wife, Sue. Bill discovered a buoy that washed up on the beach with a long handle through its center. Bill pitched his ten-year old daughter a tennis ball, and asked her to swing the buoy like a bat. Voila! The idea for the Maine Buoy Bat was born.

Each bat is made with a real lobster buoy and a hardwood handle.

The CP team has a family reunion coming up, and MP thought the bat would be a great thing to bring along. Plus, Bill and Sue sell recycled rope bases, too…. perfect for an impromptu backyard buoy ball game.

MP loves these nifty bases.
