Wal-Mart usually has great clearance prices on their off-season bats.
If you don't find anything there - check our your local online yard sales, GoodWill, etc.
You can usually snag them really cheap if they have dings in them....since we just use them for robber patrol, we don't mind a few dings. LOL!
I have one by my bed as well.
If you live close to me - I will gladly give ya one!
