Javier Baez Necklace
Javy Biaz hits a line drive to the left center gap and as he is rounding 1st, his necklace flies out from under his jersey. What is on it, and why does Javy always seem to kiss it after a big hit? It is the newest craze in baseball, a cross necklace made of intertwined bats.
As of the writing of this article, over fifty major league players and countless more minor leaguers are showcasing two very important parts of their lives: baseball and their faith.
Other Baseball Bat Cross Necklaces
There are a number of off brands producing inexpensive baseball bat cross necklaces. You can find the vast majority of these with a search like this one on Amazon. These range from just a few dollars to closer to $50.
Our experience with these types of products is you generally get what you pay for. Cheap chains, necklaces and pendants don't appear to last very long. If we were to buy one on a budget, then we recommend finding one in a 316L Stainless steel.
If you are willing to afford more, then take a look at the Five Tool baseball bat cross necklaces below.

Five Tools Cross Necklace Recommendations
I have had FiveTool necklaces for two years, and have gifted several to other people. The only issue we have had is a chain breaking while playing with the dog, catching it on his collar. Other than that, they retain their shine without much effort and are very durable for your athlete. There are several other brands of cross necklaces out there, but for me, there is only one FiveTool.
