The controversy over whether Dodger outfielder Pedro Guerrero used a doctored bat, given to him by San Francisco outfielder Jeffrey Leonard during Saturday's game against the Chicago Cubs, is over.
Bruce Froemming, one of the umpires working the Dodger-Cub series, said Monday that the umpires sawed off the ends of two of Guerrero's bats, including the one in question, and found nothing but wood.
"It's over with," Froemming said. "I called Ed Vargo (National League supervisor of umpires) and he said he opened four or six of those model of bats and there was no problem. The Japanese manufacturer of the bat just finishes it off differently than (other) bats."
Cub catcher Jody Davis had asked to have the bat checked after noticing what he called a funny mark on the end.
