Re: poll If you owned a bat company would you have your contracted players play for your companies team?
It is difficult to get these guys playing on their manufacturer teams when the Major division only has 3 or 4 teams every year. There is always Easton teams at the Major level with the Helmer group and in the past Worth/Miken also when Resmondo was with them. Hell, this past season all the Major teams were Easton sponsored teams. When Resmondo decided to merge with Easton and Helmer, the Major lost 1 sponsored team and they formed 1 team. There has not been a LS major team since Backman left in 2017. Also not even a major Demarini team since 2017 Newbreed. So those manufacturers must have decided on contracts to accomodate their players. It would be nice to have all the brands represented at the Major level but easier said than done since Sponsor money is hard to come by.
