Sports Trans-Action swings for the fences to support CHUS Foundation

Record Staff

A unique new limited edition slowpitch bat is stepping up to the plate thanks to an initiative by Sports Trans-Action, a sports equipment store here in the Townships.
Designed with the ‘ça va bien aller’ movement in mind, the bat, from the brand Louisville Slugger, aims to pay tribute to and raise funds for frontline healthcare workers during the pandemic.
The project was initiated by Pif champion Alexandre Gagné-Salvail, one of Sports Trans-Action’s ambassadors. Gagné-Salvail came up with the design for the bat with the help of two local nurses.
This limited edition of the famous Louisville Slugger not only offers new and unique colours, but additional changes have also been made. The bat will be balanced, unlike the end load swing that is usually found for this model, which allows increased control of the bat. This bat is also a one-piece construction that makes for some powerful hitting.
For every bat sold, Sports Trans-Action will give $30 to a special fund for COVID-19. The campaign’s goal is to raise $6,000.
Those interested can pre-order the limited edition bat starting on July 22, either directly in-store at Sports Trans-Action in Sherbrooke or Coaticook, or online at
The bats will be distributed starting in September 2020. Only 200 bats are available across Canada.
