If you watched any of the Dodgers exhilarating post-season mania in recent weeks, you just might have witnessed star-player Yasiel Puig's trademark taunt on TV.
For those who missed it:
But those aren't just any bats - they're Trinity bats and are manufactured right here in Southern California.
Fullerton-based Trinity Bat Company has the honor of designing and building the bats that the Dodgers are using in the World Series, and it's an opportunity they aren't taking lightly.
"Puig is Puig. To see him licking our bat, it's just been a kick. Yasmani Grandal and he's really a big guy for us too and then for the pitchers, we've done 36-inch bunting bats for the pitchers, and the other night, Rich Hill used it and hit a double. So it was a kick..."
-Steve McKee, Owner, Trinity Bat Co.
While the wood crafted into each bat stems from the East Coast, the maple bats are built and hand-finished in Fullerton.
Yasiel Puig's remarkable energy is what has helped propel the Dodgers into seasonal greatness this year.
His tendency to lick his bat is a sure-fire way to hype up Dodgers fans, but in Trinity's perspective: it's a one-of-a-kind promotion.
