Big 12 baseball: A look at the cost of top baseball bats

BY CODY STAVENHAGEN Published: May 21, 2014

Among the perks of being a baseball player at a top Division I program is a simple yet crucial fact: Players don’t have to pay for bats because most schools have sponsorship deals that result in market’s top products being provided to the school.

“We get to try out a whole lot of stuff, and if we like it, they send them in,” OU infielder Sheldon Neuse said. “It’s pretty cool, something I’ve never had to experience before.”

At lower levels, however, players and parents have to empty the wallets for top-notch bats.
