Jeff swung a small bat for a big slugger. Bagwell consistently swung a 33" 33oz bat throughout his career. He began his career swinging Worth and LVS block letter bats. He then converted to a signature model bat during the mid '90's and also settled on a large flared knob, B363 bat. Bagwell's bats typically have nice wide grain and real dense wood from the short and heavy bat specs. Bagwell did briefly use Stixx, Sam Bats and X Bats during the early 2000's. Bagwell would consistently write a large #5 on both ends of the bat, sometimes in gold ink. Jeff used various amounts of pine tar, typically around the label. His well used gamers have heavy tar along with heavy cleat marks on the right and front barrel. Jeff switched from ash to maple bats during the 2000's, you can find some well used uncracked examples of Jeff would sometimes gift bats to friends. Finding a photo matched Bagwell bat has proven to be very tough due to the black finish on his bats and lack of photographs during that era. He did not sign and inscribe home run or hit bats throughout his career. He would typically sign bats above or below the barrel branding.
