LOUISVILLE: A local baseball bat manufacturer is relocating its plant from Nimishillen Township to Louisville, the Canton Repository reports.

SabreCat Bat Co., which makes bats for some Major League Baseball players, will set up shop in the 3700 block of Tulane Avenue NE.

“We are excited about it,” Mayor Pat Fallot told the newspaper. “Louisville is going to get a new business.”

The company expects to produce about 5,000 to 6,000 bats this year and 10,000 to 12,000 in about three years, the Repository said.
