    Do you realize, that grounds managers can’t stand soft toss against the fences. The ball warps and eventually puts holes in the fence making the The dugout areas look like shit

      The bat wasn’t corked correctly. The point is to make the bad lighter, the cork doesn’t make it any more springy. It’s more about reducing the weight and increasing bat speed. The cork is only added to absorb the shock of a baseball and keep the bat from being broken so easily. Removing about 7inches of wood and adding powdered cork will still reduce the weight but to get the full effects one would have to drill out the bat more and add a solid piece of cork. These guys probably only removed a few ounces from the overall weight and the hole didn’t quite make it to the sweet spot. Also cork itself is only so light of a material because there’s so much empty space within it. When you powder the cork it looses that property & probably has about the same weight per gram as saw dust. All and all shitty commentary (seriously calm down you sound like the guy who shows up to a bbq on coke and has to constantly be quieted down) shitty execution and 0 research done before the making of this video. Love your other vids but Foreal this could have been so much better

          Radar guns work best when you hit the ball towards the gun

              Do a search for Chris Sabo Corked Bat and you’ll see who a corked bat actually looks like and you can reverse engineer it from there.

                        You need to compress the cork no difference

                          this would have no affect because you are getting from a tee so you aren’t getting the real trampoline effect, and you used dust instead of real cork so you just used a hallowed bat.

                                      You didn't bore it out nearly enough, corking a bat lowers the weight of the bat and you can then swing it faster with the same boom

                                          you need to use a longer bit and one that is wider. Also cork shavings isnt going to do it. over all great video. Love your work. My daughter just bought me a PS4 and the Show 19 so geeked to play it.

                                              to really test it, you should give it to someone and not tell them which is the corked one and have them guess which one it is. Cuz you know, bias and stuff

                                                                                          3. Added a ton of wood glue

                                                                                          5. Didn't even line up his knuckles
                                                                                          6. He screamed the entire time
                                                                                          7. He says that he crushed a ball that went 200 ft
                                                                                          8. He didn't even give his reasoning for shredding the cork
                                                                                          9. He uses stupid youtuber logic which is do what they want without research
                                                                                          10. He complains about the heat
                                                                                          11. He thinks he is funny even though he is not
                                                                                          12. Teaches people the incorrect way to cork a bat
                                                                                          13. He broke the record for the most people to quit a video before ten seconds with that number being 1.1 million
