Please start using pine tar (or super glue or bubble gum or anything else sticky) on your bat. Today marks at least the third time in the last couple weesk you’ve launched a bat into an unsuspecting crowd. I understand that you were in Baltimore, and their fans’ lives are significantly less valuable than Rays fans’, but seriously, man, you’re gonna kill somebody! I found some for sale on-line. It’s about 6 bucks.
(Disclaimer: This picture is not an ACTUAL picture of Kelly Shoppach’s bat flying into the crowd on Sunday, just a much funnier, representative picture of A bat flying into the crowd. Shoppach’s bat seems to have caused no damage).
