I have had two co-workers retire within weeks of each other. One is a huge fan of the New York Yankees, and the other enjoys playing golf.
Because these men like the swing of a baseball bat or a golf club, I’ve named this gift idea “Swing into Retirement.”
John loves his Yankees and for his gift his co-workers ordered an original New York Yankees Louisville Slugger bat with his name engraved on it. They also got him a wooden baseball bat holder so he can display the bat on his wall.
Each employee signed the bat with a black Sharpie. Afterwards, the bat was sprayed with a thin layer of clear lacquer paint to preserve the signatures.
He also received a pair of tickets to see the New York Yankees play the Texas Rangers.
