The old fashioned way entails Brand or Foil stamping, which may be inducing an undue amount of pressure on the wood fibers that are the ultimate composition of the carved baseball bat. The potential for that pressure against the wood to cause internal fissures and damage that would be impossible to expose or be aware of is no longer necessary to do. This would be allowing for the baseball bat to be experienced full force as a hitting device, with no prior events to test its density and effect the solidity of its mass. Looking for the laser emblazoned baseball bats may prove to be a jump on having a more reliable and durable slugger.
Who wants to have all points in line, a sure swing ready for a home run, and just as ball meets bat, the splinter in the wood that you had no way of knowing was splitting with every hit, suddenly cracks? Don t risk losing your favorite, home run bat.
