Vintage Hillerich and Bradsby Power Drive Bat Ray Fosse Model
Own a piece of equipment that list a person involved in one of the most famous events in baseball history. One of baseball's most famous collisions occurred at the very end of the 1970 All-Star Game, when, after the ball was hit, Pete Rose of the Reds, on third, charged as fast as he possibly could for home, but instead of sliding, he simply tackled Fosse at full speed. Both men weighed 200 lbs or more and Rose got the better of it, tagging the plate and sending Fosse sprawling. He hit him so hard he dislocated Fosse's right shoulder, and some claim this caused Fosse's career's downfall. This is #10 on the all time photos of baseball history (right in there with the catch by Willie Mays) . In a survey conducted about most memorable moments in baseball history. Taking 53 percent of the 4,529 votes cast, Pete Rose's imitation of a freight train running over Ray Fosse for a National League win was the champion of the Most Memorable Memory Tournament: All-Star Edition. This bat is in GREAT! condition- no cracks, splits, and the lettering is excellent. Bat measures 32 inches. Appears to be stamped with someones initials.
