When I was a kid, we played baseball all summer. I don't think there was a Louisville Slugger in the group, though. I wonder how much our bats, whatever they were, would be worth now? Wow -- $500. Amazing!

Sooooo just how many "antiques" do you own?
Love the bat I had one as a kid(tomboy in me) but I dont know what ever happened to it. I suppose it went out into the trash same as all my baseball cards!

In My country, that would be a club to either squish heads or to wash clothes ( by washer men)

Shadow said...

so is this one yours, or the one you want from e-bay???

It would seem that in Ann Arbor this is the tool of choice to get the hassenpfeffer started.

I played adult softball ball when the change from wood to metal was happening.. They don't use much ash right now because of the emerald ash borer, and some kind of blight...

I have been down to the factory and it is incredible all they have to share. I am sure you would enjoy the tour. But a bat such as this... yep more stuff in the G-Man mueseum. Is there no end to what you have? My friends son

Wow, an appearance by Signgurl ... yea!!!

Is there a "community organizer" bat in your arsenal? If so I would prefer a heavy one. Just askin because I need to smackdown an asshole in the White House/Oval Office for trying to close Gitmo.
