There's a reason they use hickory for axe and sledge hammer handles. It's the strongest wood for it's weight out there. For you, our Hickory handles make the bat stronger and stiffer and gives them a bigger effective sweet spot. But don't believe us - see what our customers have to say!
THE HICKORY AND TANOAK IN THIS SOLID WOOD BAT BOTH HAVE AN MLB PEDIGREE.
WITH A ONE YEAR BREAKAGE WARRANTY, WE HAVE YOUR BACK TOO.
EVERY BAT THAT GOES OUT OUR DOOR HAS OUR NAME ON IT. WE TAKE THAT SERIOUSLY.
If you choose "Best" over "Brand", then this is your new bat.
Buck the ordinary.
WE FUSED BABE RUTH'S HICKORY WITH HARMON KILLEBREW'S TANOAK TO CREATE THE BEST WOOD BASEBALL BAT YOU WILL EVER SWING. PERIOD.

Thank yo mcdougall for getting the bat on time for christmas!Great bat with tons of pop and the lizard skin is great to!
After speaking with the online customer support I finally decided on purchasing this bat. It looks amazing just like I thought it would. My son loves it even though he has only had two indoor practices with it. Can not wait for season to start. Thank you so much.
John was incredibly helpful in getting exactly what I wanted on the engraving, and it looks phenomenal. Unfortunately I'm recovering from knee surgery currently and won't be able to use it for a few months. Beyond excited to use it and will be back to report how it goes once I'm able to!
Got the bat a couple weeks ago, and I've now had a chance to take BP twice with it. First of all, it's beautiful. Looks like a piece of fine carpentry. The bat is a little heavier in the hands than a typical wood bat, with the denser materials, but swings very clean with the balanced cut (very similar to the classic 110). The weight difference is not noticeable on the swing, though the barrel profile seems a bit more sleek than comparable turns. The included literature says that the M series is indexed to the "drop weight" of the P72 turn that Derek Jeter famously used, which seems accurate. Very stiff on contact, as expected. Ball jumps off very nicely, with a pronounced !CRACK!. Looking forward to getting outside with it and seeing it travel a little bit. Pretty excited about swinging this bat in the upcoming season.
To offer a one year warranty on a wooden bat is remarkable. It looks amazing in the clear finish and has the best pop I’ve heard for wooden bats. Our team purchased two last year and I knew I had to get my son one for this year
I was so excited after researching their bats that I messed up my order, I immediately emailed them and received a phone call from Mr. Macdougall himself within minutes! He went over my order and answered a few questions for me. I haven’t received my sons bat yet but I’m positive if there are any issues in the future that need assistance, it will be handled without any problems. Thanks again!
Very limited use as of yet, but I’m pleased with the feel of the grip. It is thin enough to not add too much size, but still offers a solid, secure grip. I prefer the feel of this over the competitor’s grips.
Best fungo I have ever owned.
7 words....CANT BE BEAT AND WONT BE BEAT!!!
I am not one to write reviews, but the folks at MacDougall deserve one. I have coached youth baseball and softball for years and thought I would treat myself to a fungo. I watched the video review by the Baseball Bat Bros on MacDougall bats and was really impressed with the companies technology and commitment to quality. My concern was hitting a softball with a fungo. I feared the added mass would put too much strain on the bat. I emailed the company expressing my concern and promptly received a response. John noted it may make more sense to make the handle of my fungo out of hickory rather than the traditional European Beech to address the softball mass. I received my bat promptly and was immediately impressed. Pictures of MacDougall bats do not do them justice, but I am a production guy so I had to test it out to be satisfied. That went well too. Great balance and control, did everything I needed during out defensive session and had no concerns. Best part, I did not have to worry about label or the grain - just hitting the ball where I needed. This fungo is perfect for me. As a customer, I could not be happier - prompt communication, great product, and fast service. Keep up the great work.
I am 14 years old and swing the MacDougall M-14. I hit my first home run with a wood bat!!
The grip is great. I prefer not to use batting gloves and the grip not only feels great but assists in bat control and not developing blisters.
Straight-up, this bat is special! It impress right out of the package, and performance is off the charts! We got the 33" (my son is 15) and first at bat he crushed one 340 to the gap. His other wood bats will probably not see daylight again. The ball just keeps Going & Going!
First I want to thank John for helping me get my custom bat on time. John called me after the bat was finished with shipping options to make sure I got it in time for a national tournament. You don't get that service from the big bat companies. I got the natural finish and this is probably the most beautiful bat I've ever owned. But, best and most important is the feel on contact and just what I expected out of an end loaded bat. The sound and pop off the bat is amazing and turned heads. I had extra base hits in 4 of the 5 games in the tournament. I highly recommend this bat and am looking forward to using it next season.
This is our second bat and it is just as amazing as the first. Always get comments in the cage from those observing when they see the pop and hear the contact. This is a great product that more people should know about and this is a great company that takes quality and customer service to a high level.
