Eric Hosmer’s Dove Tail HOS Maple Bat

Hosmer swung Zinger in 2014, but since he picked up Dove Tail Bats in 2015, he hasn’t put them down.  Hosmer even converted teammate Alex Gordon, who had been a Louisville Slugger loyalist for many seasons.  Hosmer’s HOS model has a flared handle with no knob. Former Tiger great Alan Trammell also swung one of these, and our bat historian Rocky wrote about it a while back.

Hosmer has also swung the G174 (same model as Alex Gordon), which has a long barrel with a 271-type knob that allows him to “whip (the top hand) through the zone.”
