What Did Babe Ruth Call His Bat?

Babe Ruth used a variety of baseball bats during his career, never giving any bat a specific nickname. Ruth started out swinging a mammoth 36-inch, 46-ounce bat, but switched to a smaller bat later on in his profession.

Ruth was fond of using Louisville Slugger bats throughout his career and is credited with having more bats made for his personal use than any other player of the era. Compared to most players of his generation, however, Ruth broke very few bats, mainly giving them away to friends as souvenirs or allowing them to be used by the Yankees for promotional material.
