My 10 year old son, who is a pretty decent baseball player but nothing special, is convinced that he needs a $300 bat to succeed in Little League. I, on the other hand, think otherwise. Even if he will hit the ball a little bit further with one (and I'm not convinced of even that), I'm not interested in paying an extra $225 so he can hit the ball an extra 5 feet. Since it's my money, I've already won this battle. But am I wrong about the bats?
