As the team endured and came out of a franchise-long 13-year postseason drought, Yankee principals wielded these bats. Includes:
Steve Balboni 1989 Game-Used Bat: a Louisville Slugger “P89” (38.1-oz/36”) signature model wielded during Balboni’s 1989 return to the Bronx. The white ash war club shows outstanding game use with ball, bat-rack, cleat and stitch marks about the barrel, as well as transposed stampings from OAL baseballs. The handle is home to a generous coat of pine tar and an H-shaped crack that is nearly indiscernible.
Mike Stanley 1992-1997 Signed Game-Used Bat: a Louisville Slugger “W248” (33.9-oz/34”) signature model signed in black marker (“9” strength) between the center brand and barrel stampings and inscribed “#20.” The uncracked white ash weapon shows excellent game use with ball, bat-rack, cleat and deeply embedded stitch marks throughout, as well as transposed stampings from OAL baseballs. The handle is home to a lengthy application of pine tar, while the knob has a black marker notation of “20.”
