baseball bat
Prior to 1920, in the bottom of the 9th inning or and extra inning game, home runs that were hit with runners already in scoring position, were ruled by how many bases it took to score the player on base to win the game. i.e. Man on 2nd Base, Babe Ruth up to the plate. Ruth hits a home run in the bottom of the 9th inning to win the ball game. His home run would be marked as a double, because it took two bases for the man on second base to score. How bizarre is that!?
