When I think of America's favorite pastime, automatically rugged images of baseball's legends come to mind. It is like a montage of heroes that now only exist in black and white mix matched with George Brett running out of the dugout, screaming and spraying spit in the face of an umpire. Baseball has elements that are so true to its core that if you would strip the grass stained jerseys and dirt rubbed hands you might have a glass half empty. Pine tar coated bats are a staple in the realm of baseball imagery. Check out this salvaged Marucci CAT 5. As authentic as the ball player that swings this bat, somehow baseball's elements find a way to live strong in the modern era.
