The foundation for JAWbats was formed when owner Jacob Walters was just 16. He grew up with two passions in his life: wood turning and baseball. Those passions converged when Jacob turned out his first baseball bat during the (summer, fall, winter, spring?) of his (sophomore? junior?) year of high school. From that point on, his skill and zeal for creating beautiful, effective baseball bats grew. While playing college baseball, the endless road trips, sleepless nights and Jacob’s love of the game helped him focus on bettering his product. Jacob’s own drive for perfection in both playing and creating built the foundation upon which JAWbats was formed. In the middle of his collegiate career, in June of 2012, JAWbats, L.L.C. was born.
