The star of the show is the 1936-39 Ciudad Trujillo Dragons Championship Team game used bat. Stars of the 1937 United States Negro Leagues were recruited to play for the ruthless dictator Rafael Trujillo. Under threat of death, Satchel Paige and his All Star Dragons’ team were forced into a game 7 life or death match. This bat was part of that historic event.
