Caught with cork

One of baseball's biggest stars finds himself in a big jam. Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa, who has only six homers in a frustrating 2003 season, was ejected for using a corked bat against the Devil Rays on Tuesday after his bat shattered on a first-inning grounder. Crew chief Tim McClelland -- who tossed George Brett in the infamous Pine Tar Game nearly 20 years ago -- confiscated the illegal bat and ejected Sosa, who now faces a suspension.

he says he only used it for batting practice to put on a show for the fans. he cant hit homers in batting practice with a real bat? after the past homerun derbies you kind of know he used that bat for them as well, that guy was always a jackass

I thought they just juiced the balls... looks like it's the bats too. For shame.

sosa says that he only uses the bat from batting practice and home run competitions... ummm... yeah... surrrrre sammy. like you wouldn't have some sort of marking on the bat to tell it apart from the other ones, you know, seeing how it's illegal to use and all.

not only should there be markings on there, but when you pick up a corked bat you can feel that it is noticeably lighter

maybe he just thought he took a little more of the steroid juice before the game and thats why it felt lighter

I think hes guilty here, the whole, "picked up the wrong bat" line is crap. But, to his credit, i doubt he used a corker in previous seasons, he would have been found out by now.....

you don't shake something like this

espn radio made a good point this morning... when the nfl first started doing random steroid tests, it was reported that some of the game's biggest stars tested positive... the results were never made public, and everyone was found to be "clean," because the nfl couldn't afford a scandle like that. the same thing's gonna happen with sammy's bats. even if they found cork in another one, they couldn't possiably have major league baseball's most marketable star, a 500+ homerun hitter, have all of his accomplishments tainted
