There may be no musician who loves baseball more than the former White Stripes frontman Jack White. Not only can his sad face be seen at ballgames around the country every summer, but the Tigers fan has visited the Hall of Fame, met Al Kaline and even co-owns a baseball company with former Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler. And now his baseball bat is in the Hall of Fame. Yes, really. 
White used a special white-and-blue-striped version of his bat in a sandlot game before a concert in Cooperstown on May 27. Looks like it's got some serious Icky Thump. 

White's Warstic Woodmen took on the local Leatherstocking All Stars, and though rain threatened the game, the Woodmen emerged victorious. Hall of Fame president Jeff Idelson was on hand that day and even gifted White his very own Hall of Fame plaque: 

This wasn't some one-off game. If Jack White's tour takes him to your town, you may just get to see him play in a sandlot game yourself:
