    HELENA - A woman is suing the maker of Louisville Slugger aluminum baseball bats over the 2003 death of her son, who was hit with a ball during a youth league baseball game. Opening arguments began Tuesday in Helena's district court.
    Debbie Patch says her teen son Brandon was pitching for the Miles City Mavericks when a ball hit by a Helena Senators batter struck him in the temple, causing a fatal injury. The batter was using a Louisville Slugger.
    Patch claims Hillerich & Bradsby Co. knew their aluminum bats created a high probability of injury because they were designed to hit the ball with extreme force(DUH!!), and that the company should have warned users like her son.
    But Louisville Slugger attorney Rob Sterup said the outcome could have been the same with any bat and baseball is a safe sport.

    Thread revival: I saw this meme and thought it was a clever idea for those who have a baseball bat in their home defense arsenal.

    Man isn't that the truth!

    I just hope they start putting baseball bats on the Regulated list if civilians are to be allowed these in their possession.

    But honestly for the victem in this crime, It's a good thing their injuries don't seem bad enough to keep them from recovering? Personally I can't imagine being hit in the head hard enough to be knocked out with a baseball bat without cracking my skull. I also want to say in no way do I mean any offence to that person. I wish them a speedy recovery.
    Or, one has to provide proof that one is a registered and trained member of a licensed baseball league (militia) to purchase a bat.

    Remember assault Baseball Bats can also be used to accelerate objects, frequently spherical horsehide covered "killer" balls, to high rates of speed, sometimes in excess of 100 MPH, that do considerable damage to windows as well as bodies.

    Link to report, note metal bats are even more killey than wooden ones:

    No one needs to hunt with a bat. What a bunch of vile barbarians.

    BTW I always thought a field hockey stick would be better than a bat. I heard one bounce off the shin of a chick and I thought the whole world stopped in empathy for her soul leaving her body as she unleashed a blood curdling scream.
