Vintage Hillerich & Bradsby Official Cork Ball Baseball Bat
This is for an original Hillerich & Bradsby Official Cork Ball baseball bat which I would assume would be from the 1930s or maybe early 1940s. The bat is a whopping 37 inches long with gorgeous patina and no heavily worn areas. Cork ball was the fore runner to playing stickball in the streets. The barrel of the bat is much thinner than a baseball bat while the cork ball itself is smaller and weighs only 1.6 ounces, or 30% the mass of a regular baseball. Hits are determined by length as there is no running in cork ball.
A single would be hit 150 feet, 200 feet for a double, up to 250 for a triple and beyond 250 feet is a home run. As a reference, the original measurements down the left field line at Yankee Stadium was 280. Bat is in gorgeous condition and ready for a new home. Sorry I couldnt take a picture of the entire bat in one frame, but the pics will show you its in incredible condition.
