took a full swing at the victim with a aluminum girls softball bat

I can probably tell a baseball bat from a softball bat at a fair distance, but it occurred to me that I have no idea what makes a bat a girl's bat. I went on Google, Amazon, and Ebay and found out.

It is pink.

Sometimes it has a Hello Kitty on it.

Some may argue that girl's bats are lighter weight. Nope. A light bat is a light bat.

A lighter weight PINK bat would be a girl's bat.

There is one that says Diva on it and isn't pink. Progress.
