At a spring training game today I found myself in line behind a father/son duo who decided to forego the typical baseball game accessory (glove) and bring a new tool with them. They were each sporting their own baseball bat.
This raised a few questions about what they were planning to do. Here are the choices I settled on:
1.) they brought them in case one team ran out of equipment, so the game could go on.
2.) to have a player sign. But that would most likely be a minor league player who will amount to nothing.
3.) instead of catching foul balls, they plan to hit them back into play.
4.) they are SERIOUS about their team and won’t put up with opposing fan talking smack.
