My brothers (Bobby, John, Ken) and I entered the bat business with the goal of
ensuring that coaches at all levels of baseball have access to superior quality composite wood bats that are
cost effective." The Brett Brothers have been involved in baseball their entire
lives. We are four brothers and all of us played professional ball a one time.
Bobby and John played in the Minor Leagues, and Ken and George together put in
31 years in the Major Leagues.
Not only did we
play baseball because we were good, we truly loved the game. Even today we
closely follow the sport. George still works for the Kansas City Royals. Ken has
been a broadcaster for 11 years with Fox. Bobby runs our professional franchises
here in Spokane, the baseball Indians and the hockey Chiefs. The oldest brother
John is a frequent visitor here to see his brothers and watch our teams play.
baseball families, it all started in a small Southern California town call El
Segundo. The boys are all about two years apart, and we had some kind of
sporting event about every night. I remember most of our family meals were hot
dogs, and everything was on the fly. Our parents were always there to cheer for
us, and our lives were generally very happy.
Ken was the first
to sign a pro contract at age 17. He was the fourth player taken in the annual
draft by the Boston Red Sox. When their scout Joe Stephenson came to sign him,
our dad said, "the one you really want is the skinny, barefooted one, George."
George in 1966 was all of 12 years old.
If you move up
the clock to 1971, George was a senior, and Joe Stephenson desperately wanted
him to be Boston's #1 pick. The Red Sox said no, and the Kansas City Royals took
George in round #2. The rest is history. Ken played 11 years for numerous teams.
George turned out to be exactly the player our late father envisioned. He was a
3-time winner of the Batting Title in three different decades. He was very
consistent, and always played the game very hard. He was the greatest Royal, and
still makes his home in Kansas City. In the summer of 1999, he was awarded
Baseball's highest award, election to the Hall Of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.
In the spring of
1998, the Tridiamond Bat Company need a place to "try out" their new baseball
bats. Because the Bretts owned the only local professional team, an association
was formed. When Tridiamond got both NCAA and Major League approval to sell
bats, they needed some baseball help. At this time we bought into the company
and changed the name to Brett Bats.
The bat is
produced using new technology. It is a mutlilayered, power bonded, all native
hardwood bat with a reinforced handle.
The bat has been
developed over the last three years; it is patented and field tested. We believe
it's the strongest, most durable and cost effective wood composite bat available
