I find it ironic that we got metal bats as a safety matter in the first place. People were concerned about splintering wooden bats so they went to metal. Now we have come full circle.

The problem is the metal bats keep getting better and better and can now hit a ball extremely hard and far. And even if they outlaw certain bats, the kids take the bats and have them re-painted to look like legal ones and use them in the games. This information came from a friend who is head of one of the Umpire Associations in the the Tri-Valley area.
