11

Bases Loaded in the bottom of the 9th down by 4 , he takes a breath and he says , I Got this! Smash the Ball to a Homer , Drop bat and Go Go Go Run Like the wind bullseye all the way back home to Win The game ! and That’s what that good old boy did!

“Check this bat piece for venom, because it surely helped “The Cobra” Dave Parker take a bite out of National League pitching.

27

Arrr! Avast mate! Look at that ball fly!

Dave Parker game used cricket bat used in his cricket career after he retired from baseball.

Batting after Thor was always embarrassing for Dave. He hated having to drag the bat back to the dugout each time, unable to lift it himself.

35

“I’m gonna hold onto this bat just in case the 2nd Baseman tries to throw the force out @ home, I’m gonna hit it back in the field”
