Tidbits - Broken Bats
According to the Chicago Cubs, Frank Schulte of that club breaks an average of 50 bats per season. The Cub star uses bats that have the smallest handle of any that are produced. The club is of the second growth ash, and weighs forty ounces. Scores of others, major and minor leaguers, who have asked to inspect the Schulte model while ordering bats, have invariably put the home run switch aside, likening it to a "switch."
