Pete Alonso mashed through Spring Training with a Dove Tail Axe handled bat, so it was surprising to see that he’d switched back to a standard handle during the regular season. Pete’s Dove Tail bat is an MTB20 model in Birch wood, custom designed for Alonso. It has a 2″ knob, 15/16″ handle with a fast taper to a very long 2 17/32″ barrel. It has great balance for a large barrel bat, according to Dove Tail.
The “MTB” stands for “Make Them Believe,” and the bat, according to Dove Tail’s website, is only available in Alonso’s Birch wood and “only when Pete’s private wood stock allows.” Shop for $170-$185, only if Pete says so.
Pete Alonso’s bat size: 34 inch, 32 ounce
