Banished from the bedroom walk-in cupboard to the shed I'm afraid.
The good ladywife wanted to 'free up some space'.
They're in their sleeves, but in the damp atmosphere of a wooden shed, I imagine they'll put on a bit of weight over the winter.
Just like their owner.  :D

Does that mean it's a big heavy one?
Not really, from memory it's 2.10ish? Supposedly out of the special cupboard at GN.

Where is the ideal place to store your bats over the winter?

In summers, I store them in the trunk of my car.
In winters, next to heating unit.

Same place I store them in the summer - on the bat shelf.



Looks like the entire team stores their bats with you.

I store all my kit at work, Im lucky to have the 3rd & 4th floors of my office empty and as no one works there the heating is turned off so stays cool and allows me to shadow bat as well. As long as its somewhere cool and dry will be fine.

Is this why you buy and sell so many, you have to keep the collection down to numbers that will fit in the rack?

Sorry to resurrect a slightly older thread - I just wondered if anyone does find that their bats seem to take on abit of weight when being left in the garage?

I weighted a bat last night and did notice that it has gained a little bit of weight. Obviously the cold and damp weather we have had lately isnt helping. Never really come across this before.

If you store them in the garage they will gain a little bit of weight but in my opinion that's better than storing them indoors where it could be too hot.

The weight will come off in the summer during those long innings in the sun.

Should they be in bat covers?
