Since it is early Spring and only the hardiest players are already out on the diamonds in New England, here is Great Gear Recommendation #4: PyroFlite Bat Warmer by BK Enterprises. This is absolutely a product guaranteed to warm the cockles of your heart if you have expensive bats and also play baseball or softball in cold weather.
I recently purchased one of these once I knew that the Dirt Dogs were going to be playing in the Early Spring Fling Classic in late March in Rhode Island, and I have to say from experience that it not only keeps bats warm, but hot dogs as well!
The PyroFlite Bat Warmer is #1 in the world since 1999, and should be considered a critical piece of game gear for anyone playing baseball or softball in cold weather who wants to protect their high-performance bats from damage and their hands from excessive vibration and cold-weather sting.
The PyroFlite Bat Warmer is an insulated 24” x 8” bag constructed of durable black nylon fabric and insulated with thick layers of high-density foam. Also attached is a nylon strap carry handle with hook for hanging on chain-link fencing. Strapped inside is a 11” x 7” removable, microwaveable heating pad. Simply place this reusable Microcore Heating Element directly in a microwave oven for a few minutes, insert inside the carrier and zip closed around your favorite bat!
The PyroFlite warmer works with both wooden bats (30-40 minute heating time) and non-wood (metal or composite) bats (just 10 minutes heating time), and keeps them warm to temperatures well above 70 degrees Farenheit in freezing outdoor conditions for at least 4-6 hours. This ensures that bats retain their optimum flexibility at the manufacturer’s recommended temperature and helps prevent cracking or denting while giving the player greater hitting consistency in the most hostile cold-weather conditions.
With good wooden bats costing more than $70 and non-wood models costing anywhere up to $400, for about $40 you can’t beat the insurance this product provides in terms of protecting your investment in high-performance sports gear. It also gives any player extra confidence and a real performance advantage in cold weather.
