Hey everyone! :]
One of the days of ACen this year I will be cosplaying as Hideki Hinata of the anime Angel Beats!
He has a little history with Baseball and I thought it would be neat if I carried around a Baseball bat while I'm cosplaying him.

I just wanted to find out if that would be okay, or if that is not allowed?

Hope this is the right place to ask that question! Thanks :D

I would think it would have to be a hollow bat tbh, but if the staff say a real one is good, then I guess it's fine.

A baseball bat does not violate the prop acceptability checklist, so I assumed it would be okay as I will too be bringing one for my Ness cosplay.

Hollow or not, a misused baseball bat could cause serious injury, but so could most other simple props made of wood or plastic.
