I always thought there was a screening process for equipment, especially bats.

So sad.

Hey Sammy, your Cubs are in first place, MLB is struggling for attendance yet again..dont you think it would be devestating if you were caught with cork in the bat? So why even tempt fate?

dumbass moron.

I really believe him when he says it was a mistake. With today's new strikezone more bats seem to break than before so he should have been warned.

On the other hand it was too good an opportunity with runners at second and third...

He claims it was for batting practice and it got "mixed-up" with his other bats. My question is this: why even have a corked bat at all? Even for batting practice? How's that going to help you at all, especially since you can't use it in a game.

It doesn't make sense to me. It's like a hockey goalie wearing enormously oversized pads in practice. He just stands there blocking every shot thinking "man I'm great, nobody can score on me". Well how does this help him? He can't use those pads in a game.

Can anyone explain to me why they would even use a corked bat, even in practice? Is it easier on your hands, less vibration or something?
