In a lot of ways, Pillbox Bat Company started over two decades ago when Zak Fellman and Dan Watson first played little league baseball together. Most games Zak pitched while Dan played shortstop. I was around this time the two made their first baseball bat. Crafted from a humble tree limb and coated with house paint. A dozen or so of these homespun bats launched tennis balls, racquetballs, or whatever they could find in roughly organized home run derbies and pickup ball games throughout the neighborhood.
