“Mailbox Baseball” West of Lansing Leaves Wake of Destruction
A friend who lives on Forest Hill road in Eagle/Wacousta found the remains (presumably) of teenage weekend entertainment in their yard this weekend. Sounds like the vandals took out SEVERAL mailboxes on their road.
They've lived there 25 years and this was a first for them, though I have several friends who live in more rural settings who report 'chronic' problems with bored individuals playing the "Mailbox Baseball" game, which is driving down the road with a passenger whacking mailboxes with a baseball bat.
I've also heard of several clever mailbox 'fixes' that involve lead pipes fitted inside the replacement mailbox, which can create an unpleasant sensation for the bat-swinger when they clobber the lead-lined mailbox.
