Long Description:
From the Guinness World Records web site:

The largest baseball bat measures 408.9 cm. (161 in. = 13 ft. 5 in.) with a circumference of 101.6 cm. (40 in.) and is owned by the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks baseball club (Fargo Baseball L.L.C) of Fargo, North Dakota, USA.

The bat is known as 'Big Bruce' and made from white ash, the same material as major league baseball bats. It was named after Bruce Thom, President of the RedHawks' Minor League Baseball team the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks. A computer measured the specifications of an actual Louisville Slugger bat and a computer-controlled lathe was programmed with those specifications. It was turned on a lathe in the summer of 2000 by Cinderwitt and Co. of Wahpeton, North Dakota and sanded and finished by Quality Cabinets of Fargo, ND. It was engraved with a soldering iron by Blair Tweet and Tim Flakoll, both of Fargo, ND.
