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.

The film is inspired by one of our favorite quotes:

“Art reaches its greatest peak when devoid of self-consciousness. Freedom discovers man the moment he loses concern over what impression he is about to make.”

- Bruce Lee 

 

Everyone wants to make art, but there are hacks and there are masters and yes, there are critics.  What separates the hacks from the masters? The hacks listen to critics. Hacks linger in the past and let it define who they are, and what they make. Hacks rely on talent, because they don’t show up everyday to do the work. Hacks need to be comforted, and reassured. They make what the critics think they should make ... or worse they are so paralyzed by fear they don't create at all. Masters, don't even hear critics. Masters only compete with themselves. Whatever they made good or bad in the past..it's over, it doesn't even exist in the next moment. A master shows up every day, he doesn't rely on his talent ….he knows it's not enough. Masters know how to be miserable, how to grind, how to fight. They see fear as a guide…. they dance with it. To the master the blank canvas is a chance to make something new. It's his future to write...to see what he is capable of. Following instructions never results in art. Trusting your instinct is your only chance. 


OUR CAUSE

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

Our Cause

The American Indian Stic Warriors Fund by Warstic was created to raise funds to sponsor Native American Youth in the sports of Baseball, Softball, Hockey, & Lacrosse. We will also work to opportunistically improve the quality of sports facilities on tribal lands wherever we can. 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. We will work to provide mentors to extend our youths minds beyond the field of battle to make sure they value service, learning, health & nutrition, and appreciation for heritage, art and music.
