    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).

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
