Bandobras Took versus Abner Doubleday Can't Post

Both are mounted on horses.

They are armed, respectively, with a wooden shafted niblick versus a regulation MLB baseball bat.

Who knocks whose head off?

"Mister Frodo, hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good frying pan at your side. I’ve been from one side of this garden to the other, I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Providence controlling everything. There's no Music of the Ainur that controls my destiny. It's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense."

Giving the win to Bandobras Took [In reply to] Can't Post

as Doubleday's reputation for the invention of baseball is not true while Bandobras Took's reputation for the invention of golf is only fictional.

Besides Took should have an advantage of reach as the niblick is longer than the slugger.
