I all. I just thought I would share with you this Baseball bat that is in my Grandfather's possession. During the War he lived in Oxford. On the site of what is now the Churchill hospital was an American army camp. A friend of his with a reputation for acquiring things often spent time around the camp fence asking for things. On one occasion a soldier threw two baseball bats over the fence. My grandfather was offered one and his friend kept the other.
As you can see the bat itself is a Louisville Slugger and although it has a couple of cracks in it, is a great piece of history. Wonder where the Yanks who owned it ended up?
Thanks for looking.
