My son plays baseball, and keeping equipment organized is an ongoing challenge. While sticking bats in the chain link fence is a time-honored tradition, I thought I would whip up a bat holder. I can’t take credit for the concept, as one of the municipal parks had a similar solution permanently mounted. Mine is a knock-off using 3″ pvc pipe and some rope.
The machining was very simple, its basically two rectangles per bat. The only trick was to do one series of rectangles, then rotate the pipe 90 degrees before doing the second.
