Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat

New York Times sports blogger Tyler Klepner just wanted to pass along an amusing story about how a Mets pitcher likes to nickname his bats after mythical weapons.

Unfortunately, reports the Gothamist, Klepner butchered the literary references and as a result the Times’ has been forced to print a correction giving a detailed explication of whose sword was called what and why in The Hobbit and Beowulf.
