A few months ago, Bob got an odd voicemail message. The caller stated that he had a ‘ceremonial’ baseball bat that had belonged to George Kromer and was wondering if anyone here at the company had an interest in it.
Indeed we did.
As it turns out, the bat was a part of George’s estate that had wound up with his estate attorney’s family. After some negotiations involving Stormy Kromer apparel, the bat has found its way here to SK Headquarters.
The bat, a Louisville Slugger, has an inscription that reads:
TESTIMONIAL DINNER, GEO. STORMY KROMER, NOVEMBER 5, 1954.
You can see the bat on display here at Stormy Kromer when you come for one of our free factory tours – offered Monday through Friday at 1:30 pm.
