I Bought a Mariners Baseball Bat

I wanted to buy a baseball bat. I live in America now so I should own a bat. I went hunting on EBay for a cheap bat and found that there’s a market for bats used by professional teams. So I browsed the Mariners section like a good Seattleite and found the ideal bat – one formerly owned by Luis Ugueto. Now Luis barely played for the Mariners and few people remember him. He hit one home run and batted .214 so he didn’t really stress out his bats unless he used them to take out his anger on the water cooler after he got thrown out at first again.

The bat cost $15. It has Luis’ name and Seattle Mariners branded on it. I figure it is worth it.

    Totally useless trivia for you – Ugueto is also infamous for being the namesake of the “Ugueto Effect”, which describes the phenomena where it’s much easier to improve by 50% when you are really, really terrible than when you’re really, really good.

    Asking questions are really nice thing if you are not understanding something fully, except this paragraph offers good understanding even.
