Then the Flood began. The fountains of the deep broke open, and the windows of heaven were opened. Rain poured for forty days and forty nights. The waters rose until every high hill on the earth was covered. Everything that lived on land perished in the raging floodwaters (Genesis 7:17–24).

November 5-7, in partnership with the Chicago Southland CVB, Good News Travels will travel with area teachers to experience Chicago and surrounding areas first hand in search of art, science, manufacturing experiences that add value to the deep roots of the city. One of our stops along the way is Homewood Bats. Located only 20 miles south of Chicago, this hometown company was built on a passion for baseball, the manufacturing process and people. With two Professional teams, Chicago is a baseball town and this locally grown company loves baseball as much as the region it calls home.


Creating bats in a plant where visitors can see that process and customize their bat has been a dream many years in the making. Patience and prayer have made that dream a reality. The quality of each Homewood Bat show their commitment to creating a lasting product and we will experience the vision, engineering technology, and passion that brings every bat to life.


For generations families, neighbors, and friends alike, have gathered in their local park, in Grandma's back yard, and in professional stadiums to enjoy a game of baseball...Homewood Bats continues the story as they craft each bat with you in mind.
