    Default Is the Miken Freak Black still a thing around here?

    **BAT is Sold** Thank you DFP'ers for giving our MFB a new good home!

    I have a barely used 32/22 MFB gathering dust in the garage. Could make a nice xmas gift? If anyone is still looking for these.

    I'll add some pictures later.

    Why is DD bunting, she has a freaking Milken black. You do not bunt if you have a Milken black.

    The interest in the MFB faded when Miken stopped making it, and availability dried up. They're still great bats if you can find them.

    Miken Freak Black turned into the Worth 2Legit which turned into the Rawlings Quatro.

    Freak Black was a great bat and VERY light feeling

    The MFB and 2Legit were concurrent, I thought.

    The Black came out first and Miken was done with fastpitch but continued to make it. Worth took it over and ran with it. So yes, they were both "out",
    but the Black wasn't really being advanced anymore.
