Take Fear From Bats

It’s about damn time: Jobu is getting his own baseball card.

The five Topps Major League cards that arrived in 2014 Topps Archives last week are getting the jumbo treatment with a little help from their little voodoo idol as Topps is offering a 5-by-7 set of the cards online via Topps.com. 

The six-card set will be available for a limited time and arrive in a wax pack befitting the baseball card style of 25 years ago when the hit baseball movie arrived.

The set will include Rachel Phelps (Margaret Whitton), Ricky Vaughn (Charlie Sheen), Roger Dorn (Corbin Bernsen), Jake Taylor (Tom Berenger) and Eddie Harris (Chelcie Ross) in addition to Pedro Cerrano’s locker buddy.

The one about a mid-Ohio bat company looking to make it big in MLB

The barriers to entry are very real, but in a business dominated by one, giant manufacturer, Phoenix Bats—a small baseball lumber company located in mid-Ohio—looks to turn the tide.

The batter’s box is a lonely place. Baseball is a team sport, but when a hitter digs in at the plate, he is preparing himself for a split-second duel with another man some 60 feet away. Wits and confidence refined by hours upon hours in the cage are adequate weapons to be sure, but when a nasty four-seamer comes screaming towards him, a hitter’s only real friend—and most lethal weapon—is his bat. If he can’t trust his bat, then he’s already lost the battle.
