Cincinnati Reds fans everywhere can give thanks to the Louisville Slugger company for developing a new tool to help Adam Dunn finally hit a sacrifice fly. In the Reds Notes from today’s Dayton Daily News:

Adam Dunn toured the clubhouse before Wednesday’s game, proudly displaying a bat given to him by Louisville Slugger representative Chuck Shoup. On the barrel was printed, “Adam Dunn, Sacrifice Fly Bat.” Dunn hasn’t hit a sacrifice fly since July 2003.

We can only hope the newly developed tool can do the trick.

    Here are the top 10 reds seasons in AB’s with no SF

    Later,
