The Normal CornBelters, presented by Illinois Corn Farmers, announced they have renewed their partnership with B45 to be the official bat of the CornBelters. The CornBelters will play their first home game on Friday, May 13 at 6:35 p.m. using the B45 bats versus the Joliet Slammers (“CEFCU Opening Night”).
B45 is based out of Québec, Canada and has been making high-quality wood baseball bats from yellow birch since 2003. The B45 bats have been designed and created by current and former professional baseball players to insure the best quality and thought is put into each and every bat made.
“ We are very happy to renew our partnership with the CornBelters as we had amazing feedback from their players and staff last year. We are proud to contribute to the success of local heroes by providing them the best tool they can find.” said Marc-Antoine Gariépy, Business Development Manager for B45 Baseball.
The CornBelters clinched their first ever West Division Championship using B45 during the 2015 season with a record of 61-35. Manager Brooks Carey was named Frontier League Manager of the Year as well.
“B45 is one of the top bats in professional baseball and we have one of the top offenses in professional baseball so I am very excited to see the fireworks this summer,” said CornBelters President/General Manager Steve Malliet. “Fans can expect a lot of fun at The Corn Crib this summer!”
