Member is responsible to BCUSA for any loss or damage, due to any damages to a BCUSA Property while in Member’s possession.  BCUSA shall retain all rights to the manufacturer’s warranty for any given Bat in its inventory. If any BCUSA Property is damaged while in Member’s possession and said damage is not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, Member will be charged the full retail value of the BCUSA Property calculated at the time that the Bat was originally delivered to Member.  If a BCUSA Property sustains damages while in Member’s possession, Member shall deliver the BCUSA Property to BCUSA immediately.

Member specifically authorizes these charges to be made to the Member Authorized Credit Card.

 

Cracked Bats

A Member who cracks BCUSA Property (hereinafter “Cracked Bat”), has two options. Option 1) The Member may return the Cracked Bat to BCUSA and pay the one-time Bat Switch Fee. Upon receipt of the Cracked Bat, BCUSA will provide to the Member, a new bat (hereinafter “Alternate Bat Selection”), chosen by the Member, under the Bat Switch terms and conditions of this agreement. The Member may elect option (1) as many times as the Member experiences a Cracked Bat, so long as the Cracked Bat is due to the normal and intended use of a BCUSA Property, by the Member. Any determination of whether BCUSA Property became cracked or otherwise damaged due to normal and intended use, is exclusively reserved to BCUSA. Each time a Member elects to return a Cracked Bat, directly to BCUSA, they must pay the Bat Switch Fee, and make an Alternate Bat Selection. The Alternate Bat Selection under option (1) results in a new Agreement Term, with new pricing, based on the Member’s Alternate Bat Selection, and the prices listed on the BCUSA website at the time of the Alternate Bat Selection. The Member’s obligation to return BCUSA Property (in this case the Cracked Bat), and pay the Bat Switch Fee, as well as all outstanding Membership Fees due at the time of the Alternate Bat Selection, continue, even when the Member exercises the Bat Switch option due to a Cracked Bat. Option (2) The first time a Member experiences a Cracked Bat, the Member may elect to contact the manufacturer directly and exchange the Cracked Bat, under the terms and conditions provided by the manufacturer, for a replacement bat. The bat provided by the manufacturer (hereinafter the “Manufacturer Exchange Bat”) will no longer be under warranty by the manufacturer and will be marked by the manufacturer indicating that the Manufacturer Exchange Bat is no longer under warranty. The Manufacturer Exchange Bat provided by the manufacturer in this exchange remains the property of BCUSA. The Manufacturer Exchange Bat must be returned to BCUSA under the terms and conditions of this agreement as if the Manufacturer Exchange Bat was any Bat originally supplied to the Member from BCUSA pursuant to any section of this agreement. Should the Manufacturer Exchange Bat become cracked due to the normal and intended use by the Member, the Manufacturer Exchange Bat can only be exchanged for a new Bat through the Member’s exercise of option (1) in this section. If the Manufacturer Exchange Bat cracks and the Member does not return the Manufacturer Exchange Bat to BCUSA, the Member agrees to pay the full retail value of the Bat, which initially cracked, and was replaced by the Manufacturer Exchange Bat. Should BCUSA or the manufacturer determine that a bat became damaged by anything other than normal and intended use, no part of this section applies and the terms and conditions of this agreement which cover damaged bats will continue to govern the Member’s and BCUSA’s obligations under this agreement.

Indemnification

Member shall defend, indemnify, and hold BCUSA, its officers, directors, shareholders, partners, employees, agents or servants harmless, from and against any and all claims for damages involving personal injury, wrongful death or property damages arising out of all BCUSA Property leased by BCUSA to Member.  Additionally, Member agrees to indemnify, defend and hold BCUSA harmless from any and all actions, causes of actions, claims, demands, liabilities, losses, damages or expenses including all attorney’s fees (including those incurred prior to the institution of litigation through and including trial and appellate proceedings), which shall or may arise or occur at any time by reason of or as a consequence of any death, personal injury, or property damage caused in any way related to all BCUSA Property leased by BCUSA to Member.  This indemnification provision is intended to provide indemnification and defense any time BCUSA Property, leased by BCUSA to Member, causes or contributes or is alleged to have caused or contributed to an incident which results in loss, injury or damages to another even when the negligence occurs without Member’s participation or knowledge.

Failure to Perform

Any delays in or failure of performance of either party hereto shall not constitute a default hereunder or give rise to any claims of damages if and to the extent that such delay or failure is caused by occurrences including, but not limited to, acts of God or the public enemy; expropriation or confiscation of facilities; compliance with any order or request of any governmental authority; acts of war; rebellion or sabotage or damage resulting therefrom; embargoes or other import or export restrictions; fires, floods, explosions, accidents, or breakdowns; riots; strikes or other concerted acts of workers, whether direct or indirect; or any other causes whether or not of the same class or kind as those specifically above named which are not within the control of the party affected and which, by the exercise of reasonable diligence, said party is unable to prevent or provide against. A party whose performance is affected by any of the causes set forth in the preceding sentence shall give prompt written notice thereof to the other party. BCUSA shall be under no obligation to deliver any bats at any time when in BCUSA’s sole judgment it has reason to believe that the making of such delivery would be likely to cause a default by Member.  Nothing in this paragraph shall excuse Member from making a payment when due for deliveries made under the Contract.

 

Excess Quantities

In the event BCUSA should actually deliver to Member and Member should actually accept and receive during the term hereof quantities of bat(s) in excess of the quantity ordered by Member, Member agrees to pay for said bat(s) at the prices and in the method herein provided.  However, nothing in this paragraph shall be deemed to authorize the purchase of quantities otherwise unauthorized under monthly or annual quantity limitations.

Quality, Specification or Name of Product

BCUSA shall have the right at its sole discretion at any time during the life of this Agreement to change, alter, amend or eliminate any of the brands of bat(s) covered by this Agreement.  BCUSA may also, in its sole discretion, either (a) change or alter the quality, grade or specifications of any bat(s) covered by this Agreement or (b) discontinue the availability of any such bat(s).  Any such change or discontinuation shall not affect the minimum purchase requirements, monthly fee obligation or annual fee obligation set forth herein.
