This bat was sold as a cracked bat by the Giants as part of their 2010 post season sale. MLB holo is incorrect as this bat was not cracked in BP-- which was how all cracked end of season bats were authenticated. We believe it may have been cracked during WS Game 2, AB 2 vs. Cliff Lee
Below. Uribe batting in the top of the fifth inning, 2010 NLCS Game 6. Hit by pitch. His next at bat launched the Giants into the 2010 World Series.
John Taube from JT Sports/PSA agreed with our photomatch of this bat. This bat was also used for all at bats in NLCS Game 6 and we believe it was also used in the first and possibly second at bats of Game 1 of the WS. In at bat three in WS Game 1, he switched to a large knob, model C353 with a clean taped handle and launched a 3 run home run off Ranger relief pitcher Darren O'Day.
On the first pitch from Phillies relief pitcher Ryan Madsen with two outs in the top of the eight inning in the 2010 NLCS Game 6, Juan Uribe hit a opposite field home run which barely cleared the wall in right field. This home run put the Giants ahead 3 - 2 and proved to the game and series winning hit. The bat used by Uribe to hit this historic home run is pictured on this page.
