    Couple of options really.. You could take it back to the retailer you bought it from and see if they'll send it off for repairs or offer another bat.. This takes time though and you'll possibly need to knock in a new bat if they give you one... I'd probably go for this option if you've only had it a few weeks...

    Other than that though you can get some fibreglass tape and try wrap it up as tight as you can.. This will basically just hold the splinter in place.. It doesn't look like this crack would affect your play too much, so this would be my option if you can't waste a couple of weeks for a repair or replacement..

    Batting is simple (3W's):
    Watch it
    Wait for it
    WHACK IT!

    Not exactly sure what white tape you mean.. The only thing you want to do is make sure that splinter doesn't get bigger.. I used to just use black grip tape, which worked.. But I'd recommend going as strong as you can with the tape so you don't have to use as much..
