Will the World Series be win by a Sam Bat? By Marci McDonald “Holman went straight to the public library and checked out The Physics of Baseball. After months of studying bat patents, including the earliest ones for Louisville Slugger, he had reached one conclusion: He would have to find a wood that would take more punishment than ash.” “But it was a 1997 trip to a Toronto Blue Jays batting practice, arranged by another friend, that put the Sam Bat into major-league play…Joe Carter hit a homer on the first try. Later, Carter sneaked the still unsanctioned bat into a game against the Milwaukee Brewers and once again homered, providing an instant public-relations boost.”
