California lawmakers seek temporary ban on metal bats | Top stories | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle
The nannies won't be happy until they're playing with Nerf balls.
What do some of these lawmakers smoke in their off hours? They sit around and dream up this ridiculous nonsense laws, as if a ball hit by a wooden bat couldn't inflict a severe injury as well. If these lawmakers weren't wasting the taxpayers time and money it would be funny.
A line drive is part of the game and very few can get out of the way fast enough to avoid being hit in the bean or worse, the 'beans'. They want to limit baseball injuries?
Ban the game for anyone under 18! Or,
Use NERF BALLS, as Dude recommends
Use soft plastic or rubber bats,specially if a batter let's go of his bat don't want anyone with an Aluminum burn.
Increase the distance from the pitchers mound to home plate by 300 feet.
Or better yet, install a robot pitcher who doesn't give a shit.
And the last fool proof method, keep your kid at home tied to your apron strings
My thoughts exactly. In NJ every time a child is killed or injured some lawmaker tries to capitalize on it to get their frickin name in the paper. We have outlawed lawn darts and water filled yo yos and as I posted before now they want warning labels on furniture that can topple if little kids climb on them.
I sympathize with all these parents, but none of this will bring their kid back. Politicians exploiting dead children and grieving parents is beyond sleazy.
I don't think they should have to ban them, but wood bats are better.. Plus it it cold, wood pants don't hurt your hands as much.
I have also got hit in the head (wearing a helmet), the hand, and a few other places with metal bat. I am sure wood would feel better.
But on that note, it is still harder to hit women's fast pitch.
We should have never started using metal bats to begin with.
Just Ban all sports and get it over with already.
I will also remind you Major League baseball only uses wooden bats.
Wooden bats break, and they can do serious damage when they do. There was a catcher in the major leagues who wore special protection because he caught a wooden bat piece in the throat.
If anything, more use of metal bats and wooden bats should be banned. The MLB is lucky nobody's been impaled by a wooden bat on national television yet. That's what it's going to take to ban those things.
