Baseball Bat Comparison: Aluminum and Wood

This is an awesome picture that gives us a break down of the elements in a baseball bat, comparing each bat from wood to aluminum. Be honest with you, once I changed to wood I immediately like it better than aluminum. It feels better and also gives me a better grip on the ball. While aluminum will drive the ball farther, I tend to get more pop u ups in the air and I don't like the pop it gives my hands. Wood tends to absorb more of the sting, even if you hit it close to the handle. Personally I think all leagues, even when it comes to little league should switch to wooden baseball bats for safety. Baseball players such as pitchers have found out that they have very little time to react from when the ball is thrown and hits the aluminum bat. People have suffered broken bones and died because of aluminum bats.
