Wander Franco’s Cooperstown Bat Co WF5 Maple Bat

Wander Franco swings Cooperstown Bat Co., a 40 year old company from the same town as the Baseball Hall of Fame.  Cooperstown Bat Co. proudly sources all their wood from within 350 miles of Cooperstown, an area of Maple, Birch, and Ash forest that holds “the best wood for baseball bats on the planet.”

Wander seems to favor two models from Cooperstown, the WF4 and WF5.  When we were in the building, he swung the WF5.  In the 2021 playoffs, it was the WF4.  We saw him swinging a 34″ inch / 31 oz and a 33.5″ / 31 oz.

The WF5 ($110-$140 at CooperstownBat.com) is, according to Cooperstown Bat Co., “a balanced bat with an elongated barrel that transitions to a medium handle and flared knob. The flared knob adds the weight under the hands allowing the bat to swing lighter.”  Compared to the WF4, the WF5 has a thicker handle that creates better balance.  That’s a good thing for most hitters, and you can get it at CooperstownBat.com for $110-$140.

Here are the exact measurements for the WF4 and WF5:

WF4       2.46 max barrel
.96 minimum handle
1.01 at the ink dot
1.11 at 15”

WF5       2.47 max barrel
.96 minimum handle
1.03 at the ink dot
1.18 at 15″
