Byron Buxton swings Old Hickory Maple, specifically the P100 cut. You might think of Buxton as a speed guy because he runs like a Sable Antelope, but the facts prove otherwise. In 112 games played since 2020, he’s slugging at a 50 homer pace. Buxton is a power hitter, and his bat model compliments his clout.
The Old Hickory P100 is specifically designed for power hitters! Cut to the C243 profile, the P100 has a huge barrel with one of the largest sweet spots of any bat profile made today. The large barrel has a medium taper to a thin handle with a slight flare into the knob. This bat is engineered to be end heavy to deliver max force at impact. Definitely a recommended model for a stronger player who prefers more of the bat weight in the barrel of the bat.
We spoke to Travis Copley of Old Hickory, and he added that the P100 has a little shorter barrel than the 243 with a slight flare at the knob. Buxton’s bat is a 33.5 inch, 31.5 ounce. We’ve seen him with a natural barrel/black handle and cherry red. Old Hick says that Buxton lets them pick the colors.
You might see Buxton swinging the 25BB, but that’s the same P100 cut with Buxton’s new personal model number (like Trout when he switched to MT27 from J143M). Get the P100 for $175 at OldHickoryBats.com.
