Hillerich & Bradsby model H117 was produced between 1973 and 1975 likely in a pro stock or index bat type of capacity. It is possible also that it could have been made for some Hornsby related event. The bat shows no use, but is technically still considered to be a pro issued, high quality bat with proper pro markings. There is no pine tar on the handle and as expected, it is not cracked. The knob is stamped H117, which was one of Hornsby’s preferred models that he ordered during both his playing and coaching days.
