It depends on  whether you want to use the grip again. If you dont want the grip anymore, just get a knife and start cutting it off, or you could use a pair of sharp scissors. If you want to keep the grip...........push a little harder!!!

if you are really stuck, try using washing up liquid. but make sure you remove it from the handle before you use the bat again.

if you can't get a grip (no matter what grip) of the end of a handle, get down the gym!
failing that whip a knife out or turn the bat upside down, stand on the rolled up bit with both feet and pull the bat upwards.

Can you not just stand on the grip and pull the bat upwards?
