The bat Joey Votto hit the three home runs with on Sunday, including the walk-off grand slam, is going to Cooperstown.

Just as soon as Votto's finished with it.

Votto is not superstitious about bats, but when he gets one he likes, he keeps it.

"If a bat is good, I don't care if it produces homers, I don't care if I go 0-for-10, I'm going to keep using it," he said. "It's because of the quality of the bat and the way it feels.

"That's what matters most to me."
