What is the value of Sammy Sosa's corked bat?

On June 3, 2003, in a game played between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays Sammy Sosa cracked his bat revealing that the bat he was using was corked. I do not know the where about's of the famous Sammy Sosa corked bat. Earlier bats that Sammy used that were given to the Hall of Fame were later X-Rayed and no cork was found.In order to come up with a value the bat would have had to been sold at auction or compare it to an auction of a similar bat. A Pete Rose bat that was supposed to be corked sold for $103,631. on Lelands.com in 2005 The bat was bought by an Internet casino company for a publicity stunt to saw the bat in half, and raise money for charity. I don't know if the Sosa Bat would reach that kind of number but it would be an interesting auction.Recent players caught with corked bats include: Wilton Guerrero in 1997 when his bat cracked he raced to pick up the pieces instead of running to first base. The umpire quickly caught on to his actions. Chris Sabo in 1996 claimed that the corked bat he used belonged to another player. Albert Bellein 1994 got caught and the "Batgate" incident was born as team mate Jason Grimsley crawled through a ceiling and stole the bat from the umpires room. The scandal was uncovered as the bat that was used to make the switch had Paul Sorrento's name on it. (you can't make this stuff up) Billy Hatcher was caught in 1987 and Graig Nettles broke his bat in 1974 when superballs came bouncing out! Norm Cash admitted he used a corked bat in 1961.


Did Sammy Sosa cork his bat?

When somebody gets caught breaking the rules, the questions remain for a lifetime. Sosa was discovered to have used a corked bat during a game against Tampa Bay on June 3rd, 2003 when the bat shattered and was examined by the home plate umpire after the Tampa Bay catcher picked up a piece of the bat, noticed the cork, and threw the bat at the feet of the umpire. He was ejected from that game and MLB subsequently tested 76 other bats that Sosa used for cork. All were clean. He said that he only used the corked bat in batting practice to entertain the fans and mistakenly picked it up when it was his turn to bat. Sosa apologized for the mistake, regardless, he was suspended for seven games. Whether he used a corked bat at other times during his career ... we will never know. But the questions will always remain.
