I am sure that there are lots of these out there, but I can't seem to find one just like it and it makes me curious. As you can see, it is simply marked, burned in actually, within the oval : "Hillerich and Bradsby Co./BE/H&B/Louisville, KY" and at the top "Champion". No player name. No 'made in the USA', no 'Louisville Slugger. Nothing like all the others I have seen. It measures 31" tall and weighs 1 lb 10.4 oz/748 grams. Does anybody know what this was and what the "BE" stands for? Thanks....Mark G.

    I have this same bat.. I can't find any info on it. I have googled and googled. I don't want to take it somewhere and the people jerk me around saying some BS about it being worth X amount and it being worth XXX amount. I would like to know more on it before I give it to my Son who's 10 and plays travel Baseball.

    The dash-dot-dash under "HILLERICH & BRADSBY Co" is replaced with, "MADE IN U.S.A."

    Mine doesn't have " MADE IN U.S.A" So must be older than the bats made in this time frame.
