Leyritz's 34-1/2", 33.2-oz. Rawlings model MAC 25 bat was a holdover from his stint with the Padres and boasts just about as much usage as you'll ever see on a modern gamer, with rack and ball marks throughout its length, plus a heavy coating of pine tar on the handle. Bat is uncracked. Clubhouse notations appear in black marker on the knob and barrel end, while Leyritz's black-marker barrel inscription reads, "Jim Leyritz - 1999 WS Game 4 - HR BAT - Last HR of the Century." A signed LOA establishes the provenance: "Accompanying this letter of authenticity is the actual bat I used to hit the home run in Game 4 of the World Series on October 27, 1999, against the Atlanta Braves. This was the last Home Run hit in the World Series that year and therefore the last Home Run hit in the 20th century. The bat I used was a bat I began using as a member of the San Diego Padres earlier in that season." Overall outstanding use. LOA from John Taube/PSA DNA and Graded GU 10.
