Kren Bat Company Overview
The KREN BAT Co. was originally established way back in 1913, and was referenced and trademarked as the “KREN SPECIAL.” Legends such as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Rogers Hornsby and Frankie Fritch used Kren Bats during its heyday. In fact, a Kren bat is on display at the Baseball Hall Of Fame, and the original Kren tools were donated to the Hall of Fame back in the 1950s.In 2016 Kren Bats is returning with a full range of Pro Model wood bats and accessories, and they claim that their website will allow purchasers to build their own custom “KREN SPECIAL” bat. The company states that each bat will be made from the finest MLB grade Ash, Maple or Birch wood available, and that all Maple and Birch bats are Pro Ink Dot Tested.
