Old Hickory model ST73 was used by Spencer Torkelson during his 2021 minor league season. The bat shows excellent use with a handle crack with significant piece missing. There is also a crack on the end of the barrel.
Many ball marks and ink transfers are visible on the front, right, left, and back barrel surfaces. The handle has a moderate to heavy coat of pine tar and the lower part of the handle has an American flag themed Lizard Skin tape application. The handle is cracked and there is a piece missing approximately 5 to 6 inches in length. Nothing is written on either the knob or barrel end.
I acquired the bat from an Erie Seawolves groundskeeper who said he acquired the bat directly from Torkelson. The code just above his name reads “21090605-ST8”. The groundskeeper figured it was sometime in July that he got the bat, which would further make sense given the red, white, and blue patriotic lizard skin on the lower handle. Possibly used around the 4th of July. However, as far as I know, the code mentioned above would indicate the bat was made in September of 2021.
