Hoosier model ME1YB was used by Mark Ellis with the Oakland A’s during the 2009 season. The bat shows outstanding use with a handle crack.
Many ball marks and seam impressions are visible on the left and back barrel surfaces. Numerous ink transfers and cleat marks are also present. The handle has a moderate to heavy coat of pine tar/mota stick. A ring of athletic tape has been applied just above the knob. The handle is cracked at the mid-handle. The only knob marking is the stamped length (3 1/2). Ellis’ #14 is written on the barrel end in silver.
