Published Jul 13, 2018Jack White is a big baseball fan: he donated money to restore a baseball diamond, he got his own baseball card, and he once threw out the first pitch at a Detroit Tigers baseball game. Now, the sport is showing him some love in return, since his bat is being inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
The backstory is this: a few months back, White played a game of sandlot baseball in Cooperstown, NY, the same town where the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is located. During the game, White used a custom bat designed by Warstic — a bat-making company that White co-owns.
Baseball Hall of Fame president Jeff Idelson was at the game, and he personally requested White's game-used bat for the museum.
That's the bat above. You can see photos of White using the bat over at Warstic's website. To commemorate the bat being inducted into the Hall of Fame, 50 replica bats are being sold via an auction here.
