About Yanase: Takaomi Yanase is a legendary Japanese baseball bat maker. Yanase started his career with Nankai Company in Japan and was in charge of their trading company operations in the USA.   In 1977 they opened a bat manufacturing factory in Greenville, South Carolina.   This factory was sold to Louisville Slugger in 1999 and Mr. Yanase was kept on to run the factory for four additional years.   In 2003 he retired from his position with Louisville Slugger and started Yanase Bat Company in Tokyo, Japan.  Now, if you look closely, you can see the distinct “Y” of Yanase’s bats in the hand of professional players throughout Japan and the United States.
