Dove Tail Bat Company
Dove Tail Bat Company in Shirley, Maine, manufactures bats for Major League Baseball player. Baseball players of all age and experience levels use the high-quality bats for training to Little League to World Series victories. Baseball players of all age and experience levels use the high-quality bats for training to Little League to World Series victories. The company uses ash, maple, and birch wood that is grown locally, carefully selected, and hand split at the company’s log mill.

Paul and Theresa Lancisi plan to more than double their production of bats to 30,000 this year, up from 14,000 bats in 2016. The catalyst for this tremendous growth was a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), which allowed them to construct a building, buy machinery, and increase inventory through the winter.

Shirley is in Piscataquis County, one of the most politically conservative areas in the United States. The county voted for Paul LePage for governor (twice) and overwhelmingly for Donald Trump for president. Supporting candidates who disparage public subsidies is popular there. Apparently taking taxpayer funded grants dove tails just fine with that position. What contradiction?
