Composite bats are banned in Little League baseball, high school baseball, college baseball, and major league baseball. That pretty much leaves softball, and the writing may be on the wall there, too.
In this show, I discuss the history of softball bats, and then I take a look at a recently-published study that shows that some composite bats pose a real danger, especially for pitchers and third basemen.
Here are the references mentioned in the show:
