c.1929 Zeke Bonura Hillerich & Bradsby Game Used Bat

Zeke Bonura had a 7 year MLB career from 1934-1940 with a 4 year stay with the American League Chicago White Sox. During that time period, Bonura terrorized the opposing pitchers posting a .307 batting average with 119 home runs and 794 RBI. He hit 100+ RBI in 4 of his 7 seasons!

Fun Fact: Before Albert Belle went and ruined all the fun, Bonura was the White Sox single-season RBI record holder. He drove in 138 runs for the White Sox in 1936, and that record stood for 62 years before Belle shattered it with 152 in 1998.

Bonura played a brief 55 games in Minneapolis over two seasons in 1941 & 1946; and although not one of the most famous players to suit up in a Millers uniform, a fun addition to add to the collection nonetheless.
