This melee weapon is identical in appearance to the baseball bat seen in Fallout 3, but it deals more damage. The baseball bat has some of the highest durability of melee weaponry, and its availability makes it a decent starting weapon. It deals a decent amount of damage for an early weapon, but is hindered by its rather slow attack speed. It's special V.A.T.S. attack is "Grand Slam", which does 200% damage at the cost of 35 action points (requires a Meleeskill of 50).
