Our Story

a passion and respect for the game...

Located in Astoria, Oregon, “Supple Rockers” meticulously handcraft genuine baseball bats into personalized rocking chairs for the baseball purist.

Rocking chairs possess an effortless rhythm that allows the mind to drift and become naturally still. At “Supple Rockers” we incorporate this rhythm into our chairs to provide a place to reminisce about past ball games and dream of upcoming events. Our rockers represent more than just a quintessential piece of classic furniture…they signify a one of a kind experience with a passion for the game of baseball outside the white lines. Our rockers allow the body to settle into a natural rhythm that harnesses incredible powers of recuperation and regeneration.

The finest materials available are used in the construction of these chairs. The six baseball bats, which are factory turned, along with the “ticket stub” backrest, rockers, and support members are all crafted from Northern white ash lumber.

The personalized “ticket stub” which is laser engraved can be transformed to include an infinite variety of information. These graphics may include special occasions such as a birth, birthday, graduation, wedding, retirement, and a few of our favorites; that special team / player or coach.

The seats are upholstered with rich, genuine leather which includes a single hand sewn baseball stitch detail.

Our premium oil-based stain and finish provides outstanding scratch and stain resistance to help the rocker age gracefully.

We produce one size rocker, specifically engineered to conform to the smaller lead-off hitters and large enough to rock the burly clean-up players. The arms of the rocker are designed at a comfortable height to support rocking and bonding with your future superstar baby.

If baseball is your passion, as it is for us at “Supple Rockers”, this chair will provide a retreat from life’s busy schedule and allow the mind to remember how a ball game can make you forever young…the thick as perfume smells of freshly cut outfield grass, suntan lotion, hot dogs and roasted peanuts; the electricity of the crowd and how much bluer the sky is when you are lucky enough to watch a game from a front row box seat; the first big league park you ever visited and that unforgettable moment you snagged a foul ball amongst all the other fans. Silently rocking while your mind explores these sights, smells and sounds only a baseball game can produce, the experience will last well past the ninth inning.

“Supple Rockers” is a family owned, old-school business that believes our chairs can inspire, encourage and motivate. We provide our baseball purist customer a unique work of art that can be handed down through many generations. We also believe in a forgotten principle that a handshake signifies much more than a purchase order number and the value of friendship is immeasurable. Please to be sure to check out our "Post Game Interviews".

Baseball is timeless, precious, and forever. So is your family. So are our rockers.

Thank you for your interest. We appreciate the opportunity to bring a “Supple Rocker” into your home or business.

“A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” -Dodgers Standout Jackie Robinson

Post Game Interviews

why take our word for it...
"Our rocker was a surprise gift for my husband and it has become one of his very favorites. It is a centerpiece in our home and our friends and family rave about it. The quality and craftsmanship are excellent and it was so easy to communicate and work with Dan."
- Chad & Katie Tracy / Charlotte, NC
We attended a community fundraiser and saw a “Supple Rocker” that had been graciously donated by Dan & Kim. We knew we had to have it for our grandson. He has been passionate about baseball all of his life. The workmanship that Danny does is above and beyond excellence. He pays attention to every detail and uses quality materials and it is reflected in the finished product.
- Ron & Eva McClintock / Knappa, Oregon
Dan's consciousness of dignity and heartfelt energy beams from each rocker. The quality and attention to detail exude a respectful tribute to the All-American sport of baseball and by customizing each rocker, a unique opportunity is provided to share individual memories day in and day out with family and friends. The rocker speaks proudly of its new owner.
- Polk L. Riley, III / Astoria, Oregon

Dan, I wanted to thank you. What an incredible gift the rocker is. WOW! I remember how impressed I was looking at them a couple of years ago but never really thought I’d be able to get one. The craftsmanship and detail is so well done. You and the girl’s layout of the back "ticket" is amazing. A ton of little, very meaningful items. I am awed. The neatest gift I have ever gotten and Mary, family and friends really surprised me. Excellent work.

- Tim Massey / Portland, OR

You know how a certain fragrance or color reminds you of an element of your youth? When I slip my fingers around the barrel of the bat of our Supple Rocker, I am in the batter's box in the Pendleton of my boyhood. Sitting in the Supple Rocker is a guaranteed mood elevator.
