DID YOU KNOW:  Levi "Long Levi" Meyerle batted .492 for the Philadelphia A's in 1871? That's the highest batting average EVER in a single season.  The bat that he used that season he made himself and carved an intricate engraving into it.  It also had a thin leather strap in the base of the bat for him to put his hand through, much like a racquetball racket.  The bat is on display in the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY.
