Sam Holman, bat maker for players such as Albert Pujols and Barry Bonds, has put his company for sale on eBay. Asking price: $3.5 million.
Louisville Slugger may be the most famous name in baseball bats, but other major leaguers swear by the Original Maple Bat Corp.’s lumber.
About 40 per cent or 7,000 of the 17,000 bats the company produced last year were used by major league players, including Bonds, Pujols, Alfonso Soriano and Ryan Howard.
Now, owner Sam Holman–an expatriate American living in Ottawa, Ontario, has put his business up for sale on eBay–hoping but not expecting a successful bid.
