                      Cork is not so effective. It’s only to take a risk.

                                                (2:28) Why is a corked bat anywhere near an MLB ballpark? And if you have to use one for practice, you mark it with a sharpie.

                                                  What's the point of a corked bat, does the ball bounce off it better or something?

                                                    It makes the bat a lighter weight so that it can be swung faster.
