View Full Version : Dustin Pedroia Question

09-15-2007, 03:36 PM
Looking for a little help. I have a GU LVS M9 Pedroia bat with the #64 written on the knob/barrel. He wore this number during the end of last season and during spring training this year befor he changed to 15. Most pics that I found from last year have him using a SAM bat. This picture is from the first series this year. Its tough to see but I was wondering if anyone with picture skills could tell what # is written on the knob. Any help is appreciated.

I can see how it may look like a 5 but I was thinking it was a 2 digit number

Trying to see if itwas used late last year/spring training or early this year. i've handled a few Pedroia bats but this is the 1st I've seen with tape on the handle.

Possibly a Bp Bat? Ill look around for ya...

it's possible but it's the same model he has used in games for a long while now.

Looks like his rookie number 64 turned at an angle (see top picture which was enlarged)

2nd photo: Pedroia with a similar taped handle bat during spring training 2007

3rd photo: Pedroia has used taped handle bats during the regular season as you can see on the last photo of Pedroia at bat on Opening day 4-10-07 vs Mariners.

Based on the pics below, I bet Pedroia had some bats from spring training that were taped and numbered with 64 that were used in early regular season games.

Thanks for the great pics. It looked like a 64 to me also but I wanted some other people's opinions. Good to see pics of the taped handle because the ones that I've seen recently have been untaped. Looks like its a spring training/beginning of the year bat as the pictures from late last year have him mostly using a SAM bat.

When I blew it up, it looked like a 5.

Dustin was either #15 or #64 and its not #15 and looks like a 64 with the circle part of the 6 worn away. The straight line from the 4 is below the worn away 6.

Try this photo from April 4th to match up the barrel end.
