Nice article and an interesting story. We use to switch bats all the time in youth baseball. Someone always had the "hot" bat haha.

That's because you've reached your quota of free articles for the current time period.

I don't know what that time period would be since I rarely read the WSJ online articles.

I usually click through Google News in the morning ("My Bad" - Larry Brown always hated that phrase): In these cases, WSJ always has an immediate paywall; NYT and Wash Post limits me to about 10 views per month - depends how they feel at any particular moment; NPR gets me what I want through links so I always toss them a Mantle.

Thanks, Packs, for posting the article. The Ichiro section was my favorite! More or less, 'Do you know who is guy is?

In 1973 I saved up and finally bought a 'Johnny Bench' Louisville slugger. It was the sweetest feeling bat I had ever hit with. My best friend asked to borrow it for one at bat, promising to be very careful with it. He broke it in two the first time he connected. He later redeemed himself when I was pitching against one of the worst teams in the league and a guy hit one over the left-field fence for the only home run hit in our league that year (massively deep outfield). My friend was playing left field and claimed it bounced over - it was getting dark and no one argued!

I finally bought another one of these bats, on ebay last year, and plan to take it out on my birthday for a few swings.

I have no idea either but sometimes I click through on an article on a site like yahoo and to read the full article you have to click through to a site like wsj. If I click on a few I get blocked unless I pay. There are enough free sites though that I don't feel like giving out a credit card number to read an online article.
