Background[edit | edit source]
This metallic version of the baseball bat works in much the same way as its wooden cousin, and is even more effective at battering things thanks to its light but strong construction. Sluggers in need of a good bludgeoning agent (for baseball or otherwise) would be wise to grab one of these.
Available in households and sporting goods stores.
