Plain City Company Makes Bats For World's Best Players

If you drive from Marysville to Dublin on U.S. Route 33, you'll see lots of buildings, including a catering business and a Harley Davidson dealership. One business you may have missed along the way is the Phoenix Bat Company. They make wooden baseball bats for everyone from beer league softball players, vintage baseball players and the world's best hitters.
