B45 is proud to announce that All-star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez is now officially part of the B45 Team. With this partnership, he will become an official ambassador of the brand and the Quebec leading manufacturer of premium quality baseball bats will continue to gain market shares in both professional and retail sectors.
B45 will also unveil the CarGo 5, a new bat model based on the specs of Gonzalez’s actual game bat and endorsed by the athlete.
On July 9th 2015, CarGo started using B45 bats again as it was the start of an amazing half-season.
“I love the feeling of the bats and the properties of the yellow birch. These guys are doing an amazing job sending me the best bats,” said the Venezuelan slugger.
After he adopted the bats, he hit 30 homeruns, finishing his season at 40, seventh among all big leagues hitters in 2015. He also saw his bat breakage rate go drastically down of over 80%.
At age 30, CarGo will soon begin his ninth season in the Big Leagues.
