  • Who was Lee Milam?

    Found an antique baseball bat cleaning out my deceased Great Aunt's house. Can't find any info on it.

    Manufactured by Clipper of Little Rock, Arkansas. Signature on the barrel says "Lee Milam No. 225"

    Does anybody know who this is/was and when the bat might have been made?


    Thanks!

    I'm not sure if this is the Lee Milam you're looking for, but try this link, it's all I was able to find in a web search for Lee Milam.

      Hmm...

      Yeah. That's more than I found, but I still don't see much connection to baseball. The name 'Lee Milam' is burnished into the barrel of the bat by the manufacturer ("Clipper" of Little Rock, Arkansas) about which I can also find no information.

      Strange. Did the company exist only briefly and fabricate a fictional baseball star to burnish into their bats?

      Hmm...

        I believe that says Lee Milam.

        Les Milam?

        Lee Milan?

        Who is this guy?

          No idea

          There was a Frank Lee Miller
          and another Miller with the middle name Lee

          I thought it might be Clyde Milan, but it obviously says Lee as the 1st name, the last name is sketchy

            Thanks!

            Thanks for your response.

            I guess it is an antique fake...

            Crazy!

              I Am Lee Milam!

              I found this old thread and hope that someone will respond. My brother gave me a bat he found on EBay with the name "Lee Milam" engraved in the bat - it has the exact same specs as the bat Clay found in his aunts attic, obviously a minor league player. BUT IT IS NOT A FAKE - I HAVE ONE, TOO! I have researched and also have found no information of anyone who played any level of baseball with this name. I, too, would be very interested in any leads anyone might have. Sincerely, Lee Milam
