Kokomo, Indiana, December 23, 2014: Diamond Play Tournaments has reached a sponsorship agreement with Hoosier Bat Co., naming the Valparaiso-based bat maker as the Official Wood Bat of Diamond Play Tournaments as well as the title sponsor of the #HoosierHitter Offensive MVP Award for the 2015 season.
The #HoosierHitter Offensive MVP award will be given to the most outstanding hitter at each DPT event during the 2015 summer season. Each award winner will receive a custom bat from Hoosier Bat and become a member of the #HoosierHitter family.
Started more than 25 years ago in Valparaiso on the idea of creating handcrafted wooden bats with only pro grade wood, Hoosier Bat Company is now the third longest standing wood bat manufacturer in the country. Still to this day Hoosier Bat continues to source only the best wood from the best regions of North America and still only sell pro grade wood. From hitters like Frank Thomas who inducted his Hoosier Bat to the MLB Hall of Fame and Sammy Sosa swinging it to knock his historic 65th and 66th home runs in 1998, to modern day sluggers like Prince Fielder winning the 2012 Home run Derby swinging a Hoosier Bat, the bats have withstood the test of time.
