A honky beater is a bat normally procured through ballpark giveaways. It is known as a honky beater due to its small size relative to a nigger beater
. The benchmark for nigger beater
status is roughly the size of a children's T-ball bat. A honky beater, in contrast, is roughly half the size of a nigger beater
, with both a shorter length and smaller barrel circumference. Based on the theory that beating a honky effectively should require less effort than beating a nigger to the same degree.
