THE STORYWe couldn't believe it ourselves, but a Jack White game used Warstic bat is being inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame! As always we think our friend Saint Rita, patron saint of the impossible, may have had a hand in what became an unbelievable day none of us saw coming.
Before his concert at Brewery Ommegang, Jack White and the Warstic Woodmen were scheduled to play a sandlot game against a local Cooperstown league at the historic Doubleday Field. However the weather refused to cooperate; it rained all night and throughout the morning making Doubleday unplayable.
As the Warstic Woodmen gathered in a small local diner to regroup, Jack decided rain or shine... we were playing ball that day. The Warstic team scrambled to pull in any favors and any contacts they could (even a call to the local Mayor) before finally getting the ok to use a small public field outside of town.
It was a mud pit by then with no chalk lines and high grass, but almost like it was planned the rain let up as we walked out for the first pitch. What happened next was a classic sandlot game with dugout beers, loose animals on the field and a general good time had by all.
In attendance was the President of the Baseball Hall of Fame who watched as the Warstic Woodmen continued their undefeated streak. After the game, he personally requested that the Jack White's game used Warstic bat be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
We wanted to make this little bit of Warstic history for you as well. To commemorate and share this with our fans, we made 50 limited edition replicas of this Onefastbuffalo designed Hall of Fame Warstic Bat personally signed by Jack White and individually numbered.
