Bat Thrown by Clemens at Piazza Sells for $47,800
The baseball bat thrown by former New York Yankees' pitcher Roger Clemens at New York Mets' Mike Piazza in the 2000 World Series brings $47,800 at Heritage Auctions, Feb. 22, 2014. That is almost five-times its $10,000+ pre-auction estimate. The bat was consigned by Yankees' strength and conditioning coach Jeff Mangold, who retrieved it from the clubhouse after it was tossed by a bat boy.
