He's a poser!

Everyone knows, you hold the bat at the wooden end and hit with the taped end!

I don't get it. If you're going to buy something, why not go all the way and buy a real bat? Or do they only sell those tinny, aluminium bats these days?


Pssst, Ken. I think you're Canadandianness is showing.

Well the whole thing is just crazy! Anyone can just walk down to the local hockey rink and find dozens of broken hockey sticks that make perfectly good stickbats. Isn't that so?


Ken, the point behind base (and stick) ball is round bat, round ball, and contacting them squarely.

Sort of takes the fun out of it if one is flat.

Ken Muldrew

Hmmm...I've heard cricket players say the same thing about using a glove to catch a ball (the business side of their bats is pretty flat, though, so what do they know?).

Still, we have a beautiful weekend in the offing and the leaves are finally starting to open up and make this place green again. Flat or round, so long as one is outside swinging a stick at some tossed object, all is well with the world.
