It is hard to imagine what it would have been like to be a baseball player coming up Circa 1915 with the name of "George Herman" and coming to the eventual realization that regardless of what you did on the field you would play in the shadows of THE "George Herman". Offered is an interesting 35", 35 ounce vintage "Oil Tempered" JF Hillerich & Sons bat returned to the factory on April 20th, 1921. Based on the address of Homstead, PA this bat could have been wielded by a member of the Homstead Grays. An attracive early pro model bat that presents well even thought there is a 15" by 1 1/2" piece missing from the back barrel.
