Ash Bat

This whole thing with maple bats verses white ash, what's your take on each verses the safety factor?

As you all know a player came pretty close to getting killed he other day because of these maple bats that tend to shatter much easier than white ash. Players say that regardless of any safety factor, maple makes the ball go further with less concussion on the hands. But is it really worth the risk?

Now that we've had a serious injury to a player who has been struck by a broken maple bat, I think change will come soon. We don't normally make changes to prevent something serious from happening- we usually react to an event by removing the unsafe element of the equation. In this case, it's the maple bat. The nature of maple causes it to break differently than ash, which is why you see so many of the bats shatter without showing any prior signs of damage. Ash bats will crack first, giving the player the feedback needed to put the bat away before it shatters. Maple does not- it microfractures without losing its integrity, until it just shatters in a batter's hands. If they could make a metal bat that does not outperform wood, I would be in favor of seeing them use that. We won't see baseball move away from wooden bats in our lifetime, though.
