MORE baseball? Well, I suppose first mention of baseball in the comics itself. The previous mentions was in a commentary.
Still this is quite a lot of talk about baseball all of a sudden. Reminds me of an episode of Mythbusters in which they tested the effectiveness of corked bats. I don't wish to spoil their results, but I vaguely recall someone I know questioning their methodology. I think they were only testing speed? I'm not sure what all you'd need to test in regard to the effectively of corked bats.
Whatever the case, I'm fairly certain the effectiveness of Batman wouldn't be improved with corks. Granted, I'm not certain how a merger of Batman and corks would occur. I'm pretty sure it woulldn't do his armor any good, and eating it would no doubt be a bad idea. Maybe corked batarangs? That might actually work. Make them more light weight. Course, they'd hit with less force, but really, the batarangs are a ridiculous concept anyway. They're either less efficient throwing stars or less efficient boomarangs, and when the former, why even keep "rang" in the name?
It's possible Batman is silly.
