Remember all those times we wanted to trade Steve Finley or Shea Hillenbrand for a bucket of balls?

Well, in the not-to-distant future, it may be more of a reality than any of us could ever really know.

McALLEN, Texas -- Even though small independent baseball leagues notoriously try to draw fans with promotions like "vasectomy night" and "midget wrestling," two teams had good reasons to swap a right-handed pitcher for 10 bats.

The Calgary Vipers of the Golden Baseball League couldn't get newly signed pitcher John Odom into Canada for immigration reasons.

And the Laredo Broncos of the United League were willing to take a cheap gamble on a pitcher.

Oh, and the Vipers really, really wanted some new bats.
