Hoskins has the perfect swing and thanks to East Norriton bat maker David Chandler, now he has the perfect bat for the derby, too.

The Hoskins bats include tributes to Philadelphia, with the Liberty Bell and the “215” on top of the Philly skyline. The bat also pays homage to Hoskins’ home town, Sacramento, California.
Chandler also made bats for last year’s Home Run Derby winner, Aaron Judge.
