Common shape of break in a wooden bat. Note the single


Looking at the photo, I'm surprised some nanny group has not tried to
ban baseball.¬* Too dangerous for children.

When I was a kid the pro teams used to give the cracked bats to
young fans in the stands. They'd take them home, tape them up and
use them in their sand lot games.

The Mets (and probably other teams) use to have Bat Days. They
give hundreds of fans a miniature (18"?) bat with the team logo
on it. Hundreds of NYC fans, many of them drunk and rowdy.

What could possibly go wrong? ;-)

Back when kids/drunk adults were taught¬* to use their heads,
little happened.¬* Now days all bets are off because, one out of a
zillion, will obtain an attorney and we end up where we are today.

But then again there was Disco Demolition at Comiskey Park may years
ago, A Bill Veck promo gone awry.

Another Bill Veck promo debacle was Dime Beer Night at Cleveland's old
municipal stadium, which remains the only game in MLB history to be
forfeited because of unruly fans storming the field.

LOL... Now that there is funny!
