Bolco Bases traces its history back to 1959. Lou Lunetta, the Parks and Recreation Director of Orange County, California, along with Lou Orsatti, Recreation Director for the city of Los Angeles, were tired of the options available to them for putting bases on the hundreds of ball fields they were responsible for. The Lous either had to buy very expensive bases that would last longer or buy cheaper bases that had to be replaced every year. Lunetta and Orsatti decided to make what they really wanted: a high quality, lower cost alternative base. Bolco Bases was soon born and a new category was created in the base market. Bolco Bases dominated this new high quality, lower cost segment of the market, eventually becoming the industry standard across the country’s Parks and Recreation Fields. In 1989, Bolco was acquired by Adams USA and production was moved to their headquarters in Cookville, Tennessee, until Adams USA was purchased by Schutt in 2010.
