LOGANSPORT. Ind. (WLFI) — The Titan Bat Company in Logansport has quickly become one of baseball's best kept secrets.

Trampas Young started making souvenir bats out of his garage about a decade ago, and his passion has quickly grown into a profitable business.

"I went at it and I ended up carving out a little miniature bat, like one you get as a souvenir at a ball game for my son," said Young. 

Young has graduated from mini bats, to regular size, his business has grown with the bats. He's now operating out of a 5,000 square foot facility. Titan Bats can now be found all over the Midwest, and the rest of the country from the youth level to the AAA in minor league baseball.

"I had to take a few weeks off of work because I was making so many bats," said Young. "Hand carving them, and it's about a four hour process per bat."

As the demand for a Titan bat has risen over the last eight years, so has the technology in Young's shop. A new CNC computerized machine allows Young to keep up with requests. 

"I can do about 100 bats a day versus you know three or four on the hand carving lathe."

Young's passion for the game of baseball and making high quality equipment has quickly gone from a dream to a reality, and his vision hasn't slowed down. 

"I would like to be in the MLB in a year or two," said Young. 

Young is a full time employee at the juvenile center in Logansport, and does all of his work with Titan Bat Co. in his free time. He hopes to be certified by the MLB and have Titan Bats in the hands of the best players in the world within the next few seasons.
