Circa 1904, the Lajoie bat was used in both practice and play, and was an experiment in increasing the batter's accuracy. The batter was meant to curl a finger under the extra knob. It was thought this would improve fine control, allowing the batter to "hit'em where they ain't". Popularized by Hall of Famer Napoleon Lajoie. This bat design is based on research into the bats used by Hall of Famer Napoleon Lajoie at the Baseball Hall of Fame. Usable for re-enactment play or as a unique conversation piece. The golden oak finish completes the vintage feel of this bat! Made of northern white ash and given a golden oak hand finishing.
