St. Louis man trying to reinvent the bat

The first official baseball bat was made in the 1880's, but not much has changed since.

When we think of a baseball bat, we think a slab of wood, and it been that way for a long time. But like with everything in life, someone is trying to improve the technology.

That someone is from our town. His name is Grady Phelan, and he is making bats safer for the hitter and easier to swing.

Frank Cusumano and photographer Tony Chambers spent some with the Grady Wednesday.
