It took about 30 minutes to make a bat with the old hand lathe versus 30 seconds today with an automated process. The average bat today weighs 30-32 ounces. Many professional players' bats are custom made and their contract autograph appears on the bat. You'll see Dustin Pedroia and Big Papi's custom order bats and signature on several photos uploaded.
