Watching the 7 hour marathon that is the Home Run Derby reminded me of these: The Tidal Wave aluminum bat. Anybody remember these? A softball bat filled with water?!? They weighed at least 56 ounces and did absolutely nothing to increase hitting power, yet everybody wanted one. Actually, it was only partially full so as you swing the bat, the water would gush from the handle to the barrel as you made contact. What a POS. I couldn't find a single image or story about them on Google, so those skeptical will just have to trust me on this one. Man, it was like swinging a sequoia.
