    Yes, Arod started to order the P72 exactly like Jeter. In fact Jeter would complain we gave better wood to Arod though we would run 48 bats and just split them into two orders for the both of them.

    Have you ever considered boning like Chandler?

    Have any guys here had experience with Beaver Bat Co.?

    I believe they did change their position this past year, at least for the smaller guys, a memo was sent out prior to the 2014 season addressing the manufacturing process and the compression/boning issue. It's not a "round" bat when it's compressed like that.

    Anyone have a picture of a bat from the year or two when Louisville placed in huge writing "LOUISVILLE" on the opposite side of the barrel? I remember Rickey Henderson in 1989 WS using a black bat with that written on the barrel. Can't find a pic for the life of me..BMH, why did you guys do that and why you get rid of it? My guess is MLB or another bat company complained about the branding

    I thought zboehmer's question was "has MLB changed their position on allowing manufacturer's to bone rub bats." So my answer was no they have not changed. I might have read it wrong. You are correct in stating they only want a "round" bat.

    It was in response to Worth and Rawlings putting bigger and bigger ovals on their bats. So we put "LOUISVILLE" down the backside of the barrel. During the winter meetings that year is when MLB started enforcing the logo size and placement rules...

    I'm surprised that Rickey didn't spray paint "RICKEY" in huge letters on his bats and down his pant legs...

    Brian, BMH, thank you for all your time on this thread. Somehow I've overlooked this thread in my three years on this site. A fascinating read, and I hope LS keeps going for another 100+ years.
