TOY BASE-BALL BAT.

Specification of Letters Patent. I I

Application filed July 30, 1913.

' Patented Oct. 6, 1914. Serial in. 781,999.

To all whom it mag concern;

Be it known that I, J AMES/ A. MUIIPIII, a t n f the i ed a s of Aweic siding at Holyoke, in the county of Hamp-.

den and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Toy Base-Ball Bats.

This invention relates to improvements in toys and more especially to whistles or sound producing devices. The object of the invention is the produc-. tion of a whistle, constructed to resemble inminiature, a baseball bat, which can be used at baseball games both as souvenirs and as an effective means of applause.

In the accompanying. drawings, wherein similar letters of reference refer to similar parts throughout the several views; Figurel is a side elevation of the device. Fig. 2 is a cross sectional view thereof taken on the lines 22of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a cross sectional View taken on the lines-33 of Fig.1. F ig. 4 is a partial longitudinal sectional view taken on the medial line 4-4 of Fig.1, showing the whistle producing means ready for use. Fig. 5 is a. view similar to Fig. 4 but showing the whistlev producing means closed. In general the device consists of a small baseball bat, provided at its outermost portion with a whistle producing device, and a partially rotatable cap whereby the whistle may be opened or closed at will.

Referring to Fig. 1, 1 represents, in a general way, a piece of wood which has been turned to conform tothe general shape of a. baseball bat. A groove 12, located about midway of the bat, is provided for the reception of a bow of ribbon of either the national or team colors, or any other desired ornamentation. The whistle is located in the outermost end portion'of the bat. The outermost portion 2 of the bat l is turned down to a somewhat smaller diameter and is provided with a hole 3. A transverse cut I 4, of the general shape shown in Fig. 4, is

formed in the portion 2 sufficiently deep to communicate with the hole 3. Furthermore, the hole 3, with the exception of a small slit or open space 6, is entirely closed up by a plug 5 as will be clearly seen by a re to Fig. 4. A cap 7, fitted over the turned down portion 2 preserves the general outline of the bat. In the cap 7 are two holes or apertures, a hole 8 in the sleeve like 'portion of the cap and a hole 9 in-the end portion thereof... The hole 3, when the cap is in one positioh, is designed to register with the transverse cut 4, inthenwked down portion 20f the bat. The hole 9, which is located eccentrically in the end portion of the cap 7, 1s des gned, when the cap is in one position, to register substantially with the opening 6 in the plug 5. The cap 7 is held from longitudinal movement by a pin 11, which is his tened to the turned down portion 2 and rides in a transverse slot 10 in the cap. This latter construction is clearly illustrated in Fig. 2, from which it is obvious that the cap 7 is revoluble, relative to the turned down portion 2, through an arc of approximately ninety degrees.

Fig. 4 shows the parts of the device in their proper relative position for sounding the whistle. The cap 7 has been turned on the portion 2 to bring the hole 3 in registration with the transverse opening 4 and the hole 9 in substantial registration with the opening 6. With the parts in this position.

it is clear that a blast ofair, directed into the hole 9, will. pass through the opening 6 and the transverse opening 4, to emerge through the hole 8, emitting in the usual manner a whistling sound. When the whistling action is not desired, the cap 7 may be turned through its arc of rotation, which will close the opening 4 and will bring the hole 9 out of direct communication with the openin 6. This condition is clearly illustrated 1n Fig. 5 and it is also obvious that, since an exit for the air no longer exists, no whistling sound can be produced.

It has been shown that the cap 7 constitutes a means for opening or closing the whistle, moreover, with the cap in closed position, the whistle is protected from dust and dirt. There remains to be pointed out, however, a further novel feature, which is due to the rotatable cap 7. If the cap 7 is held stationary in one hand and a blast of air is directed constantly into the aperture 9, it is possible, by rotating the bat with the other hand, to produce intermittent sounds of varying frequency. Furthermore, by varying the intensity of the blast of air as well as the speed of rotation, numerous other unique effects may be obtained. The turned down portion with the hole 3 may be considered a tubular portion.

What I'claim is,

1. In a toy baseball bat, the combination with 9, turned down portion thereon, of Whistle producing means located at the ba11- engaging end, and a cap, partially revoluble upon said turned down portion, and provided 'Wlth openings, therein to form an entrance and an exit for air, whereby the whistleisrendered either operative or inoperative, as described. v

2. A toj'y baseball bat havin its ball engaging end formed with a tu ular nortion axially arranged, a closed end having an mimee opening therein, a 'eap on the tubular portion having entrance and exit openings for fitil and cooperating with the opening in the closed end portion, whereby a Whistle or sound producing device is formed at the bell engaging end of the bet, 'as described.
