Rawlings model M715B was used during the 2005 season as a member of the Texas Rangers. The bat shows excellent use with numerous ball marks, ink transfers, and deeply embedded seam impressions visible on the front, right, and back barrel surfaces. Several cleat marks are also present. The handle has a moderate to heavy coat of pine tar and it is not cracked. However, there is a crack at the end of the barrel. The knob is stamped with the model number (M715B), batch code (662), and year code (05). Typical factory weight marking of ’31 Matthews’ is written in pen and an additional marking of 31.1 is done in black.
