Metal Alloy and Aluminum Bats

Recommended Posts

It's time for MLB to allow the use of these bats.

People are going to hit homeruns anyway, so why not let them in? It shouldn't make much of a difference.

Also, all stats and records would be considered as part of the same body. No asterisks or classification.

Who's with me?

honestly, I have said this for a long ass time. How awesome would it be to get rid of the NL rules and modify the AL rules to where the DH had to use an aluminum bat and it was mandatory he was on steroids. Could be renamed to the Designated Roider. Add some modern day strategy to the game LOL

Only if they also do away with drug testing.  I want to see roided out mutants hitting 600 foot home runs.  Of course pitchers and even infielders should probably wear pads and headgear.  

Hell yes! Throw a net in front of the pitchers like in BP. Move the infield back 100 feet. DH gets 2 strikes only, but 5 balls for a walk and it cant be an intentional pass.

You've got my vote.  I'm also imagining a Max Max Beyond Thunderdome style cage that they play in to prevent fans from getting maimed or killed.

Definitely worth the price of admission.

All fences would have to be as high as the green monster all the way around.

If this is a serious question then I would ask you why you want to switch from wood bats to BBCOR bats? 

The certified BBCOR .50 bats that have been used in both High School and College for the last several have the same pop as using a wood bat.

My Son is in 8th grade and had to start using BBCOR in September when he moved into 14U and the exit velocity on his newer BBCOR bat is 8-10 miles less than the bat he used in 13U.

I thought they adjusted the formula used to make the bats so that they were more similar to the wood bats.

That's not what I'm looking for.

I want bats that will allow them to be better at hitting homeruns.

In 1975, during Spring Training, the Cincinnati Reds experimented with the use of aluminum bats. 

They concluded them to be unsafe at this level of play, and the idea was discarded.

Hmmmmmm.

I feel like there would be homeruns, though.

There definitely would be, but there would probably be casualties as well.

Can you imagine Mark McGwire during his most powerful days with a solid stick aluminum bat?

Someone somewhere would have been killed.
