Spring Fever Auction
This bat dates to the 1943-49 Era. H & B bat records reveal that the team ordered team index bats during the 1945 season. Those orders did not note the model, length, nor weight of the bats. In 1949, Mel Ott's personal bat records show that on 6 - 22 - 1949, Ott ordered the 016 model measuring 34" and weighing 33 ounces. This bat may have been available for him as a coach or may have been a New York Giants team index ordered bat. The bat shows heavy use with ball marks, a restored handle, Grain swelling and slight deadwood, and a restored handle. The bat has been awarded a grade of A7 from MEARS Memorabilia Evaluation and Research Services.
