The Redhead’s lumber from the ‘58 Series, in which he hit an even .300 (9 for 30) in the Braves’ oh-so-close shot at taking down the mighty Yankees for the second straight October, when they failed to close the deal after taking a 3-to-1 game advantage. For the Braves, acquiring Shoendienst in a mid-season trade the year before from the Giants was the last link to title elevation, though injuries held the the slick fielding second sacker to only 106 games and a .262 average in ‘58. He would then stage a miraculous return from tuberculosis that cost him part of a lung and nearly 2 seasons, and hit over .300 twice more before beginning a sterling managing career. Louisville Slugger is a specially personalized number, engraved with “World Series 1958, Milwaukee Braves” and his scripted signature. Kettle-handle bat shows light if any use and a gorgeous light coffee color. Bat came directly from Red.
