It would be even more remarkable if it was balanced on the handle side

You can place a tilted bottle in a pile of sand, remove most of the sand, and the bottle would remain tilted. It`s the same principle with this bat. Only it was dropped at exactly the right angle with the exact amount of force to bounce off of a sandy terrain that happened to be perfectly shaped so as to give the exact conditions for this to happen. I think I might buy a lottery ticket real soon!

Scotchy,
What is the player supposed to do? Stop running and admire his supreme luck over the bat?
BTW that gets him out usually.

Something`s definitely dodgy. Maybe not a weighted bat - some kind of string arrangement set up to cause it? Or magnets. Or some clever videoshopping with reverse timing. In short, some form of deliberate fakery.

I once flicked a cigarette butt onto the street and it landed standing on its end, like that. I stopped and looked for a minute.

No one in baseball would use a weighted bat during a game, especially one balanced at the end, it would significantly decrease bat speed and control. Just imagine trying to play baseball with a sledgehammer. People only use weighted bats in practice to train your muscle and brain so when they use a lighter bat in the game, it`s easier.

I like how so many people "think" they`re so smart because they "think" the bat is weighted.

most likley weighted, just think how hard it is to balkance a bat like that as it is, regardles of the extra energy of the bat being thrown.

Billy Wagner (#13 - who was pitching for The Mets) is God. Maybe he allowed the bat to balanced.

Hopefully it`s one of the new flat end bats, if not, then it`s a weighted one. I guess they`ve moved on from the corked ones after poor Sami broke one in half.

I think it might be one of those new bats that`s flat on the end of the barrel. I was watching a game a couple of months ago where a manager wanted the umpires to check the bat to make sure it was legal because he`d never seen a bat like that before. I turned out to be a legal bat.

Weighted bat. From the looks of it, that`s a poorly made one...

Well, y`know, not that exact thing, but stuff that makes me think "That could not have happened if I tried!" It`s pretty weird.

pretty damn unlikely, but then again we all just saw it, i guess if its happening thousands of times a day quite a few of them probably do that its just not caught on film, still he should have been given a medal for such an achievment

I don`t know if he got a homerun, but that would definitely be one of those days to buy some lotto tickets (not that pro athletes need the extra moolah).
