Louisville Slugger model C243 was used by JD Drew in 2009 as a member of the Boston Red Sox. The bat shows outstanding use. Many ball marks, seam impressions, and ink transfers are visible on the front, right, and back barrel surfaces. There is significant grain swelling on the right barrel from repeated contact. The handle has a moderate to heavy coat of pine tar and it is cracked. The knob is stamped with the date of production (6/18/2009) and digits for the length and weight (34/32 oz). The weight (now illegible) was written in pencil and Drew’s #7 is written on both ends in black marker.
