I am a big baseball fan and I have never seen this item before. It was a custom bat / fly rod by Ted Williams which sold at a recent auction for $1600. Ted Williams was one of the greatest hitters of all time. He was the last baseball player to ever hit over .400 in a single season. He hit .406 in 1941. What most people don’t realize was he was also a hall of fame, fly fisherman and loved to fish for bonefish in the keys. He was quite an angler. How cool would this bat/rod be hanging in your fly tying room?
