January 27, 2002 Sam’s bats turn Bonds into ‘superman’ By Todd Saelhof “It was Holman’s now famous maple wood bats that Bonds used to leave his single-season home-run mark on baseball history.” “…Bonds, whose 73 home-run season with the San Francisco Giants set a new major league standard. “Sam wants to give me the credit. But it took both of us to do it. I give thanks to God for my ability, and I give thanks to Sam for producing something that give me a lot of confidence.” “The difference is [such mass manufacturers as Rawlings or Louisville] try to satisfy the client on a model of bat,” Bonds said. “Sam tries to satisfy the client with the performance of a bat. His are custom made.”
