A baseball bat is a smooth wooden club used in the sport of baseball to hit the ball after it is thrown by the pitcher. By regulation it may be no more than 2.75 inches in diameter at the thickest part and no more than 42 inches (1,100 mm) long.
The Baseball bat is useful in close quarter combat. It silent with moderate reach but does little damage against enemies, although a blow to the head will kill a zombie instantly. Other, bladed weapons such as the Firefighter Axe or Splitting Axe are generally preferred over the baseball bat for their superior damage and their utility for opening cans.
