* The baseball bat is one of the better choices in ''VideoGame/ProjectZomboid'', where most of the weapons (except firearms) are [[ImprovisedWeapon household items]]. If you want your bat even deadlier (but slightly less durable), find a hammer and some nails.

* During the Sword of Schueler riots in the ''Literature/{{Safehold}}'' novels, one group of rioters attacked a family of Charisian expatriates. One of them had been a professional baseball player before emigrating from Charis, and had his lucky bat on him during the riots. It didn't go very well for the rioters.

** VideoGame/{{Fallout4}} also features baseball bats, or "Sluggers" as the weapon vendor Moe Cronin calls them. They can be upgraded to aluminum (increasing damage and decreasing weight) and you can add other nasty upgrades to them, like nails, razor blades, or even buzz-saw blades that have been wrapped in barbed wire.

A unique bat from the 2076 World Series is squirreled away in Jamaica Plains, and every so often a whack from it can send a hapless foe flying into the distance, dealing [[OneHitKill lethal]] [[LudicrousGibs damage]] if they're unfortunate enough to hit something like a wall.

* Bad Girl from ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes''; Most of the other assassins the game use ridiculously complex gadgets and weapons (Bad Girl's predecessor attacks you with a WaveMotionGun disguised as a ''shopping cart''). Bad Girl is able to rise above all but one of them with nothing but a wooden bat and [[AxCrazy a serious case of the deep-down crazies]]. And [[AbnormalAmmo projectile gimps.]] She even says the Trope name during her downward swing, and if you hurt her enough, she sets in on fire.
