[[File:BaseballBat-GTASA.jpg|thumb|106px|The Bat in GTA San Andreas]]
The '''Baseball Bat''' is a very common melee weapon throughout the [[GTA III Era]] games.
== Description ==
A wooden bat is featured in [[Grand Theft Auto III]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], and [[Grand Theft Auto Advance]], but an aluminum bat is featured in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], and [[Grand Theft Auto IV]]. It is by far the easiest [[weapon]] to obtain, with one always at the safehouse in the games taking place in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, and a common sight throughout the other games. The baseball bat is also commonly seen in the hands of gangsters, mobsters, and sometimes civilians throughout the games.
In GTA IV, the Baseball Bat can be purchased at the back-alley gun shops for $5. It cannot be purchased from [[Little Jacob]]. This is a pretty good weapon for attacking people at point-blank range, but the knife is better. This is about a 3 or 4 hit kill and can break windows also. In [[The Lost and Damned]], the bat is used to hit other racers in bike races. If you time your attack right and keep a distance while confronting someone, you can swing a lethal direct hit to the head which can knock out, or even kill, the person your fighting.
In an [[Beta Releases|early version]] of Grand Theft Auto IV a [[Beta Weapons|wooden baseball bat]] appeared.
