Louisville Slugger model R161 was used by Terry Pendleton with the Cincinnati Reds during the 1997 season. The bat shows light to moderate use with a secured handle crack that has a small chip missing. Several ball marks and light seam impressions are visible on the back barrel surface. The handle has a light coat of pine tar and a secured handle crack that has a small chip missing. Written in silver on the knob is the model number (R161), Pendleton’s #9, and the length (34.5). The barrel end has the exact same markings, also done in silver.
