Hoosier Bat is the third-largest manufacturer of regulation-quality wood bats in the world—and probably the only place where you can touch a bat destined for a major-league swinger. Take their guided tour and you’ll get to see bats being manufactured right in front of your eyes. In the gift shop, order a completely customized bat (regulation- or mini-sized) or pick up some baseball-themed jewelry. Hoosier Bat also creates sports-themed stools—bring in your favorite jersey and have it made into a seat. Don’t miss… the guided tour, where you can learn what it takes to make bats that pro hitters love. Tours are by appointment only, so call at least a day ahead to set one up.
