I have several old bats both wood and metal that I hate to just throw away,
Make a coat rack! Towel rack! http://doitmyselfcrafts.blogspot.com/2012/08/baseball-bat-coat-rack.html
Definitely don’t throw them out!!! If you don’t want to keep them or upcycle them, those are like gold to other people who love to design with a repurposed strategy. Check out Pinterest and/or straight to Bob Villa’s website.
Karen ... They can be used as shelves .
