Founder, Beltway Bats

Beltway Bat Company was founded on the outskirts of Our Nation's Capital in Arlington, Virginia by Joe Devine, creator of the Beltway Bat.

Devine grew up playing on fields across the small rural suburbs of Southern New Jersey.  He played his collegiate baseball in The District of Columbia as a third-baseman for Catholic University.  After years on the diamond, Devine got to turning his own bats in a workshop right inside the DC area's Capital Beltway.  That workshop is where the very first Beltway Bat came to life.  Since those early days Beltway Bat Company continues to pioneer professional wood bat manufacturing in the DC area.

Each of our quality wood bats are handcrafted from carefully selected, kiln dried professional grade northern white ash or solid hard maple for their optimal straightness of grain.  Our independent and professional manufacturing techniques revitalizes the modern custom wood bat industry, making Beltway Bat Co. the first brand to merge the historic glory days of traditional bat production with today's latest technology.  Our cut-to-order customization process allows us to offer teams and individuals options like never before, and ensures all of our Beltway Bats have the capability to accommodate every type of ballplayer.
