Classic Sports – Sandlot Stick

Price:  $6 (Dicks Sporting Goods)
Construction:  1 piece; injection molded plastic barrel; medium hard plastic

Pros:  One piece construction with somewhat thicker plastic than most lower end bats.  Another nice point to this bat was that it was SO BAD, that we didn’t bother with a video review.  Less work for us, I guess.

Cons:  There are a lot of cons with this bat. The major one is the size, measuring in at 29 3/4″ long. Dick’s Sporting Good’s online page for this bat says it’s 34 3/4″ so there may be a longer one out there somewhere. The second major issue is there is very little pop of the bat and the ball does not fly far at all. Finally, and this is purely aesthetic, this bat is completely cheesy looking. You may not be able to tell in the picture, but the logo is on a piece of plastic wrapped around the bat which also serves the purpose of attaching the “grip” to the bat. The grip is completely loose otherwise so you can not hold the handle well when swinging.

Grade:  F

Disclaimer:  Word on the street is that there is a Sandlot Stick that is 33″-34″ and a much better bat than this.  Until we find it, this will remain our review.  So, if you know where we can get one, we’d love that information.

    1. Hey John,

      I recently saw that bat in Dicks. Unfortunately it’s a rebadged version of the exact same bat as the previous Sandlot Stick that we reviewed that received such poor grades. I saw it and had to check it out, then I walked away shaking my head.

    1. It’s been quite a while Ryan. Next time I see one, I’ll have a look at it in the store and see if it’s the same thing. Happy wiffling.

  1. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! seriously! this is the best baseball bat evar!!!!! THIS IS BETTER THAN MOONSHOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Would this be a good bat to play in a more confined space? My parents just cut down a pine tree in our backyard which leaves the 60 foot fence easy to hit homer over and we have already lost 2 balls since this morning.
