With the Guinness World Record for “World’s Largest Baseball Bat” at 12 feet long, 3.5 feet wide, and weighing in at 660 lbs., this bat is truly one-of-a-kind! The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory team has created a one-of-a-kind baseball bat that will be on display at their museum through the end of 2017.
The record-breaking bat was made using 669 pieces of wood, each cut to precise specifications, so they can all fit together perfectly. It took over four months to assemble, with an additional 2 weeks to paint it black before getting engraved with details like the date it was finished and who built it. The bat was unveiled at the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, home of “The King of Bats” – Babe Ruth’s own 120 models. It is currently on display in their new Champions Gallery, which features over two dozen World Series trophies along with other amazing baseball memorabilia.
This massive bat broke the previous record of 12 feet, one inch in length, and 660 lbs. And it is made of over 660 individual pieces of wood!
