    Seems kind of stupid when on board luggage space is so restricted in the first place.

    I find one of those small bats to be much more dangerous than a pen knife. It's the size of a billy club and could really do some damage if someone were to strike a person (particularly in the head) with it. Same for the other sports "sticks."

    Does seem pretty darn weird...
