Last week during a game in Cincinnati, Umpire Jerry Layne was struck in the head with a broken bat. The fat part of the bat knocked Mr. Layne in the left side of the head. He was taken to the hospital and checked for a concussion.
I know the answer isn't aluminum bats, but somebody better figure out something before a player, umpire or fan is killed or maimed for life. Please solve the problem before Congress gets involved.
For my part I've made a hard hitting documentary about the danger of maple baseball bats. Okay, maybe it's not so much a documentary as a new episode of Baseball Card Theater.
Today we look at dude's bats, featuring Boog Powell, Steve Garvey, Norm Cash, Al Oliver, Kirk Gibson, and Terry Francona just to name 6.
