Orioles' Jonathan Villar Hits Record-Setting Home Run with Bat Made by Phoenix BatsSeptember 17, 2019
Jonathan Villar hit a tiebreaking, record-setting three-run homer in the seventh inning, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-3 Wednesday night to end a six-game losing streak. The bat that Villar used was made by Phoenix Bats, a company based in Plain City, Ohio.
Phoenix Bats' CEO Joel Armbruster told ABC6/FOX28 that the bat Villar used for the record-setting home run is on its way to the Hall of Fame.
Villar's drive off Caleb Ferguson (1-2) was the 6,106th in the majors this season, breaking the previous mark of 6,105 in 2017. The milestone shot came on a fastball that Villar sent deep into the left-field seats to snap a 2-2 deadlock.
