Celebration - Team Cuba


2006 World Baseball Classic jersey signed by members of Team Cuba, who placed higher than any other Caribbean squad before losing the title game to Japan

Facing the Texas Rangers on July 30, 2012, Los Angeles Angels DH Kendrys Morales used this bat to break out of a 3-for-28 slump in style. In the sixth inning, the Cuban homered twice: a two-run blast as a lefty and a grand slam from the right side of the plate. Only two other big leaguers have clouted switch-hit home runs in the same inning: Carlos Baerga (April 8, 1993) and Mark Bellhorn (August 29, 2002).
