I hate to be the bearer of bad news.... but we have had THREE seperate experiences transporting baseball items into & out of Mexico.

1. Leaving the U.S. they would not let us put the bat in "checked" luggage! (why? we still don't know) But we lost that bat to the "left-behind-item bin.

2. Leaving the U.S. on another flight; they would not allow us to have the softballs in our carry-on. (the supervisor said they "can be used as a weapon" ) I could only wish I had that good of an arm.

3. Leaving MEXICO they confiscated "our balls" again! (I mean really?)

Just wanted to share our experience so that it might help others get those much needed sports items down to La Manzanilla without too much hardship. Good Luck. Would love to see the kids playing when we arrive.
