Shoeless Joe Jackson and the Mystery Surrounding WWI Era YMCA Louisville Slugger Baseball Bats.

Baseball has long been considered America’s favorite pastime. But baseball has played other and perhaps even more significant roles throughout American History including being an important outlet and morale booster to our brave members of every branch of the military – during peacetime and in times of war.

And today, we’re going to share with you one such morale boosting program that took place during WWI that involved Clark Griffith, owner of the Washington Senators and partnerships such as those with the YMCA and Hillerich and Bradsby (Louisville Slugger).

The items produced during this time, including professional model baseball bats such as our featured piece of baseball legend Shoeless Joe Jackson are amongst the most valuable and sought-after relics of this wartime era.

However, much of the information surrounding this program and related partnerships remains a mystery to this day. But we will share with you what we know and what we have on this exciting episode of History and Relics.
