The 2010 MLB playoffs are finally here with many great matchups. The 2010 Major League Baseball season was one of the most exciting we’ve seen in a while with pitching dominating for the first time in many years. For the playoffs, Baseball Rampage has done some research to find which baseball bats and manufacturers some of this year’s teams biggest stars are using. Let the games begin:
Cincinnati Reds vs. Philadelphia Phillies
Reds: Jay Bruce appears to be using Old Hickory Bats. Possible 2010 NL MVP Joey Votto currently uses Louisville Slugger baseball bats.
Phillies: Former MVP Shortstop Jimmy Rollins currently uses Max Bats. Slugger Ryan Howard uses bats made by Marucci Sports.
