Baseball bats are popular weapons. They're commonly considered as such in RealLife in any country where baseball isn't that big. Hell, it's sort of like that even in the ones where baseball ''is'' a big deal. Brits or Aussies could substitute a cricket bat -- artfully described on the CricketRules page as "flat on one side, making it ideal for hitting people who owe you money without leaving a bruise. The flatness also gives it edges, for when you ''do'' want to leave a bruise".
