They call it swinging the heavy bat.
Baseball players do it, warming up in the on-deck circle, swinging a bat with weights inside of it, or a bat with a detachable weight on the end. Swing the heavy bat long enough, and the normal bat seems light as a feather.
Patrick County was Galax’s heavy bat, and Hazard, Ky. served as Grayson County’s donut. Because when the Maroon Tide hosts the Blue Devils Friday in the renewal of their Mountain Empire District rivalry, the load will seem a lot lighter than it has on recent Fridays.
