Tucci Lumber Bat Co.

You may be asking yourself what baseball bats have to do with Isabella.  Well let me explain.  As some of you may know, I began playing fast pitch baseball again a few years ago after a nearly 20 year absence from the game.  It’s a wood bat league, so every now and then, I have to get a new bat because the wood bats break.  Last year, I heard that one of the guys in our league, Pete Tucci, started his own bat company here in Norwalk so I thought I’d throw some support over to a local business.

Recently, I went over to the store and placed my order for my custom bat, complete with my choice of size, weight, knob, barrel size, color, and engraving!  Imagine my surprise when I went to pick up my bat and he not only had my bat ready, but he also made custom bats for Annalise, Isabella, and Nathaniel.  Now, they have their own bats just like Daddy!

The last few weeks have been pretty rough, with Isabella’s decline and Sebastian’s death among other things.  I know Pete probably doesn’t think that making a couple of bats would have such an impact, but it’s these little random acts of kindness that can really help perk someone up.  Never underestimate the power of every little act of kindness, whether it’s a simple smile, or a thank you, or making a bunch of bats! 

So, if you are in the market for a bat, be sure to check out Pete’s website (www.tlbats.com) or check out his store here in Norwalk.  He not only creates bats for baseball and softball, but also promotional and souvenir bats.

And even if you’re not looking for a bat, stop by his Facebook page and let him know his actions have not gone unnoticed.  Remember, don’t underestimate the power of simple kindness! Smile
