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.

why take our word for it...

I just love my Supple Rocker! I purchased my Rocker in 2009 after visiting Dan and Kim with my Family, and after touring the Supple Rocker Shop. What an amazing operation! Dan and I talked about personalizing my Rocker. After an agreement with MLB, we were able to incorporate an etching of my late Dad's ticket stub from Game 6 of the 1975 World Series and an autographed bat by Hall of Famer Bobby Doerr into my Rocker. The Rocker truly brings back life long memories when I sit in it.

My new Supple rocking chair is very special to me. It is the center piece in our family room. I want to thank you both for making the process of the designing of my chair such a great experience, you are so easy to work with and very creative in helping me design the ticket stub of the chair. The craftsmanship of the chair is awesome. I could not be happier with the chair. Thank you both again!

Moore Family

Congrats Dan and Kim! We are so thrilled with the success of your rockers! The spotlight on the rockers is well deserved and a long time coming! As you know, we were so thrilled to present such a special, personalized gift to our parents for their 50th wedding anniversary! The rocker is a beautifully, hand-crafted work of art! We will all cherish it for many years to come! We are so fortunate to have such wonderful community members! Thank you Supple’s!

Thought I would send our thoughts regarding your awesome and unique chairs! First I think they are such a "unique" gift idea for the person who loves baseball. Regardless if you are a coach, a player, or an fan there is a baseball rocker for you. Customizing it to your liking is so easy because Dan will work to make every inch of that chair personal to the recipient. The craftsmanship and material is such high quality that after you purchase one you will want to design one for yourself. I would recommend Supple Rockers to anyone. They are beautiful, comfortable, and a real conversation piece!

What an incredible piece. I was immediately years younger and back behind the dish. The chair is a reminder of how much I love the game of baseball. Every time I sit in it I get flashbacks of playing. The Craftsmanship is amazing and I am lucky to have one.
