I know if I broke someone else's bat on accidentally, I would let them know and do my best to replace it. But I don't know how (I'm not sure how to word this) "ethically sound" he is. People I know tend to think that if they break something that isn't theirs its not a big deal because it doesn't affect them and they won't go out of their own way to make things right. I'm not specifically talking about him, just people at my school in general (kinda sad, isn't it).
I also talked to my parents about it and my mom wants me to tell him to buy me a new one, but my dad is looking at it like accident happen and I should let it go and get a new one.
I just have this feeling that if I don't say anything to him I won't have a bat to practice with. Or even worse; him telling me he'll get me one then doesn't follow up on his word and I'll have to go get one when its too late.
