Default Bat checks

Should TD's pay someone (or find volunteers I guess) to check bats prior to letting them in the dugouts?

what about paying say an ump and two players/coaches to check each bat in? check the approved list, make sure the paint job isn't upside down, WEIGH IT and yes NOT allow bats that vary too much, yadda yadda yadda.

It would up tournament fees and/or take away from prizes. Do you cynics think it would help at all?

Or just go to a harder ball and metal bats. Problem solved.

nope but if I did I would have been smart enough to protect my head

No way a pitcher should take the mound without headgear

doesn't matter..I talked to a guy that umped the firecracker last year, (I think that was the one with the supplied bats), even with supplied bats....they kept catching people trying to sneak other bats into the game
