One of the Best Hitters of his Time. Client Since 1996.
At 5’4″ and only 140 pounds, Willie Keeler is one of the smallest men to ever play Major League baseball. Being one of the smallest men, it is no surprise that he also used the smallest bat in history. His offensive weapon was only 30 inches and weighed only 29 ounces. In 1894, he began a streak of eight seasons with 200 or more hits, which stands to this date as a feat equaled by only Pete Rose.
