Chase Utley broke his trusty batting practice bat May 9 in San Francisco. Equpiment manager Dan O’Rourke was able to repair the bat with some nails, and Utley has it back for use.
“It gives me that same feel every day,” Utley told Todd Zolecki.
Utley is 11-for-50 since breaking the bat. Of course, before that he had a three-game hitless stretch, but can’t we say it’s the bat’s fault?
