Some Boston Red Sox players have added flavor to their lumber.
The Boston Globe’s Pete Abraham recently scoped out some bats used by the Sox and discovered some interesting personalized decals. The days of simply inscribing a number on the knob are long gone.
David Ortiz and Hanley Ramirez both use an outline of their native Dominican Republic, according to Abraham, while Pablo Sandoval uses his own ?Congo de Africa? logo. Other players, like Mike Napoli and Ryan Hanigan, have their number and the ?Boston Strong” mantra.
It all comes down to personal preference, obviously, and a little help from home clubhouse manager Tom McLaughlin.
