"Lethal sporting equipment. Swing for the fences to send your enemies just a bit outside."
— In-game description
The baseball bat, referred to as MVP, has been added in the March 21, 2016 update, and is statistically similar to the other melee weapons. Upon getting a kill with the MVP, the sound of audience cheering can be heard, and when pressing the reload button the player will make a pointing gesture (similarly to Babe Ruth).
The Baseball bat was added to Call of Duty: WWII with the Blitzkrieg event on April 17th, 2018. Initially, it appeared as one of the eight melee weapons available in the Nazi Zombies map The Shadowed Throne, having the same appearance as its "Triple" variant from multiplayer.
