Rob Sellers, a Walmart pharmacist and woodworking craftsman, made his first wooden baseball bat in the summer of 1996. Soon after that, Sellers Bat Company was born.
Combining the finest Northern White Ash or Canadian Hard Maple with precision workmanship, Rob turns each bat individually to ensure quality. Each bat is hand sanded and finished with laser engraving to the customer’s specifications. Sellers Bat Company has been featured on Bob Phillips’ “Texas Country Reporter,” John Pronk’s “Texas Tales” (WFAA-Dallas), Austin American Statesman, Waco Tribune-Herald, and television news stories in Waco and the surrounding area.
Sellers bats are Little League approved and from the spring of 1999 to the fall of 2002, Sellers Bat Company received approval from Major League Baseball to manufacture bats for professional play.
Now you too can have an authentic Sellers bat. Each bat is personalized with your name, signature or logo laser engraved into the barrel of the bat, just like in the major leagues.
