JACK WHITE’S BASEBALL BAT INDUCTED INTO COOPERSTOWN HALL OF FAME
A bat that Jack White used during a charity baseball game outside Cooperstown, New York, has been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Warstic, the baseball bat company co-owned by White and current Los Angeles Angels second baseman Ian Kinsler, announced on Friday that White’s bat had been enshrined in the Cooperstown museum. White used the bat while playing with his team, the Warstic Woodmen, in a sandlot game against local club the Leatherstocking All Stars before his concert in Cooperstown on May 27th. National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum president Jeff Idelson later requested that the bat be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Warstic later created 50 limited edition exact replicas of White’s bat, which were then individually numbered, signed by White and auctioned online for charity. The proceeds, which totaled $32,000, went to support Native American youth participation in baseball, as well as Well For Culture, an initiative within the Native Wellness Institute which seeks to teach and promote healthy lifestyle practices tailored to Native Americans. White, a lifelong baseball and Detroit Tigers fan, invested in 2016 in Warstic, recording the song “Battle Cry” to help market the bats. He has also reportedly invested in restoring baseball fields around his home city of Detroit so that kids could play on them
