Why Walter?


The Walter Bat Company is the culmination of two passions - entrepreneurship and baseball.  

With a nod to the founder of the W.H. Bagshaw Company, and with the same entrepreneurial spirit, the husband and wife team Aaron and Adria Bagshaw are launching a wood bat business within the W.H. Bagshaw Company.   

In 1870, Walter H. Bagshaw opened a pin manufacturing factory in Lowell, Massachusetts, which moved to Nashua NH in 1949. For the past 150+ years, the company has continued to make precision parts for a variety of industries. 

Turning wood into bats uses the same concept as the process of turning metal into components. The employees at the W.H. Bagshaw Company are excited to welcome you all to the Walter Bat Company, bringing you top quality wood bats and related merchandise.
