The name Cubacan was created by Gerardo Hernandez and Bill Ryan to provide a name and logo for their baseball bats. It began as a desire by Gerardo to supply practice bats for his team, Havana Industriales.
Over time as the quality of the bats improved, the next objective was to introduce the bats to the
Cuban National Series. These bats are now used by various teams and players throughout the Cuban Series. Over 500 hundred bats have been provided to the league at no cost.
The next objective was to have the bats used by the Cuban National Team in International play. They were first used in the World Baseball Challenge, Prince George BC. More recently they appeared with the Cuban National team in the 2015 Toronto Pan Am Games. We are also very excited to see our bats appears in the historic game between the Cuban National Team and the Tampa Bay Rays.
