I found out today that my cat (Jack Sane) has, or rather had, a job. He got a letter today requesting info regarding his working for Hillerich and Bradsby, those fine chaps that bring to America, the most excellent product, the “Louisville Slugger”. It seems my cat quit his bat engineering job there, due to creative differences with the management. Jack got this letter because there is a very hep cat out in Montana, that wants to get some answers to some questions…*
When I was reading about how you quit from Hillerich and Bradsby, I was wondering if you could go into more detail about what they were doing wrong. What was so unsafe?
Why would a bat company want to come out with a metal bat that acts like wood when you could just use wood?
What are some advantages aof wood opposed to aluminum?
Could you send me some statistics on the wood vs. aluminum (bats) and the reaction time for pichers if the ball is hit right at them?
The final question is the reason my cat quit the company in 1997. I have done some research, and the school, the individual, and the baseball team the cat refers to is all real. At first, I thought it was some kind of anthraxian letter, but everything checks out. My quandry is, should I forward the letter to the right Jack Sane, (I already found his home address, home phone and fax number) or should I send back some choice responses to the above questions?
The reason Jack Sane gets letters, is that my phone is listed under his name. He’s never gotten hand-addressed letters from real humans before.
Any choice answers for the above questions? I’m sorely tempted…
