Marv Bittinger, one of the co-authors of Dusty Baker’s Hitting Handbook visited the Louisville Slugger bat museum and factory in Louisville, KY last Wednesday. It was a most interesting and informative tour. You watch the procedures they use to produce today’s bat. You also see bats once used by Babe Ruth and other Hall-of-Fame players, as well as present day players such as Joey Votto. You can even program purchase your own autographed, personalized bat.
I highly recommend you visit the Louisville Slugger Museum and there you will see several Louisville essay writing Slugger bats on display. See if you can track down a size similar to Dusty Baker’s bat. It is model number S318, 35 inches and 33 ounces. Below is a couple of pictures of Dusty’s Bat.
