Discussion: Any work from you "buyers" on the Veteran Core Bat

This is Steve McKinlay again. I would like to clarify my position on the bat refunds. I partnered with Bill Gateley in GSC in January 2011. The bats that he sold were in 2010, prior to my involvement in the company. It did not take long before I discovered that China was NEVER going to be able to build a durable bat. In March we began to search the United States for a manufacturer. It was not until Bill Gateley was forced to exit GSC and sign over his ownership to me, and my posting as such on the Message Board, that I became aware of all these pending refunds. Bill never disclosed to me the volume of refunds he had promised. These refunds are legally not my responsibility. They are Bill Gateley's. However, because I will have a bat to offer in exchange, I am willing to do so. My goal has always been to put a good bat in the hands of senior players.

This is Steve McKinlay. As I have previously posted, our toll free number is 888-459-7040. (ChiPrimeMarty--I have not received your emails so call me at this phone number). This line comes directly to me. I do not like emails. I will be happy to talk to anyone that has questions or concerns about the bat. I will be in Vegas, #21 on Demolition GSC if you would like to speak to me directly. GSC is not just building a bat, it is building a bat factory. A true OEM in the United States. It takes time and I will not release this bat before it is to my standard.

Discussion: GSC Bats

This is Steve McKinlay. I play with Demolition GSC. For the record, I partnered with Bill Gateley over a year ago, first to perfect the Veteran bat being built in China, and ultimately to build a new bat in the United States. The process of building this bat has taken far longer than we originally anticipated, but it is far better than we could have hoped for. My motivation to get in to the bat business was because I was tired of spending thousands of dollars, and seeing my teammates spend thousands of dollars, on bats that were breaking. In the last month, it was discovered that Bill Gateley had been perpetuating misrepresentations about GSC without my knowledge. Bill is now legally disassociated from GSC completely. Since Billís departure, I have received multiple notices of faulty GSC bats sold and promises of replacement, that I had no knowledge of. I will honor those replacements. I am continuing the manufacturing process of the new Veteran Core bat. We will introduce it by May. We are gearing up for full scale production and inventory reserves so that we are ready for sales. I will honor any bat breakage issues for any GSC bats, past and future. You may contact me directly at but I prefer you call me on our toll free number (888) 459-7040. My hope is that you will be patient as we bring this bat to market. It is 100% made in the USA, something we all can be proud to be a part of.
