This softball bat was made by Cooper, which is now known as KR3. KR3 is the exclusive bat supplier for the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, and provides all the Induction Day bats each year.
Cooper bats have been accepted for use by Major League Baseball since 1986. On April 11th, 1986, Buck Martinez had his first hit of the season off a Cooper bat while playing for the Toronto Blue Jays. This was the first Major League hit recorded off a Canadian-made bat.
