Illinois Baseball Loving Dads Will Want These Mugs Made from Bats
Nothing sounds as good as the crack of a bat at Guaranteed Rate and Wrigley Fields. With no MLB, guess we'll crack open a cold drink and pour it in one of these.
Over the years, I've spent hundreds of dollars on the game of baseball. Hats, jerseys, jackets, coffee mugs, cooler bags, pins, magnets, socks, PJs, boxer shorts and T-shirts. I've never seen something as cool as the mugs made from real baseball bats.
If you're still stuck on what to buy pops for Father's Day, I'll... I mean he'll... take a Dugout Mug. Created from American-made baseball bats, the Dugout Mug has a perfect origin story.
... in 2014 while coaching at Florida Tech, Randall Thompson (Dugout Mug creator) was sitting in the dugout and listening to the hitting coach tell the guys to “FOCUS ON THE HANDS.” To emphasize his point, he cut off the top of a baseball bat and left the barrel sitting on the bench… BOOM! Randall thought, “I could definitely drink from a bat!”
He's so right, we CAN definitely drink from a bat. You can order your mug with any MLB team you like at DugoutMugs.com.
And, if 12 ounces aren't your thing and shots are, voila.
Dugout Mugs even makes wine mugs.
These also aren't as expensive as I thought they would be, when they popped up in my Instagram feed. The twelve ounce mugs are $65, the shot glass is $24.50 and the wine glass is on sale right now for $45.
