Hillerich & Bradsby 125 signature model used by the most perfect hitter in all of history, owner of the all-time highest batting average. He was the League's batting champion 11 consecutive times, and for 14 total seasons during his 20-year playing career. Part of the reason for his success was his hitting savvy. He wasn’t a slugger who constantly swung for the fences, but hit more for accuracy and control based on the particular game strategy. For this reason, he always used a split handed grip with one hand by the knob and the other hand several inches higher on the handle. There is faint evidence of The Georgia Peach’s patented black tape on the handle in the two spots where he preferred to grip the bat, with hands apart. Dark finish to the lumber is darkened even more from the years of exposure. Little to no deadwood apparent. No splintering or cracks. From the Harry Evans collection with his original tag still attached to the bat.
