  • Wipe your bat with alcohol every day, especially if the handle is immersed in pine tar. Alcohol cleans the bat and prevents tar and dirt buildup.
  • Keep the bat away from damp areas. Try not to expose it to wet substances and/or surfaces. If the bat does get wet, dry it immediately with a soft cloth and rub it with linseed oil.
  • Rub the bat with a smooth piece of bone or another wooden bat. Use hard strokes, as if you were using sandpaper, and keep rubbing for about 5 minutes or until the bat’s surface appears to be smooth.
  • Store your bat vertically in a dry place, keeping the handle side up. But you already knew that, right?!
