ABOUT PLAYERS WEEKEND
Major League Baseball's Player's Weekend took place again in August 2018 as a way to showcase the personalities and interests of players and increase fan and youth engagement in the sport. As part of that weekend, big league players were allowed to use customized equipment with relaxed rules for decoration. Wood bats were allowed to exceed the common color schemes and stain styles usually allowed.
ABOUT THE BATS
The one of kind bats were designed and hand painted by Warstic Founder/Designer Ben Jenkins of OneFastBuffalo. For this year’s MLB Players Weekend we chose to make weapons of art as tokens of appreciation for these masters in the art of hitting. In our short film ‘The Art of Hitting’ featuring 2018 Face of Battle Justin Upton and Warstic founder Ben Jenkins, we explore our shared fear of the blank canvas.
A portion of profits from this auction got to our American Indian Stic Warriors Fund. The fund raises money to sponsor Native American Youth in the sports of Baseball, Softball, Hockey, & Lacrosse. It will not only sponsor individual players but also be used to improve the quality of sports facilities on tribal lands. Our goal is to make quality instruction and education in these stic sports more accessible by easing the financial burden associated with specialized select sports in todays world. We will work with Native Youth to hone their mental game, increase nutritional knowledge and to expand their perspective on life beyond sports. Learn more in our video below
