re: Proof that Mickey Mantle corked his bats

quote:

During our examination of the bat, we noticed a circular area .75 inches wide in the center of the top barrel. The finish in the area has also been touched up to mask the circular area. Alterations of this nature indicate the barrel has been drilled and filled with cork….we had the barrel x-rayed and (it) confirms that the barrel has been drilled and filled with cork."

One corked bat equals mantle corking all his bats.

Solid TD logic


No one said he did it to every bat he ever used.

But I'd now bet this isn't the only one.

It definitely makes the less effective part of the barrel more effective. I'm talking baseball. Baseball is more than just home runs.

Are we really surprised a baseball player decided to cheat?

Just cause it's corked doesn't mean he did it.

Every generation has cheated in baseball. It annoys me that people act like the Steroid Era was the only era that cheated.

This is impossible. No one in the history of the game before the steroid area EVER did anything to get a leg up on the game!
