Metal bats vs. wooden bats

Never thought this debate would qualify for the crime bog, but voila! Up in New York, there's a court battle over it. This is from the AP:

A judge on Tuesday upheld New York's ban on metal bats in high school baseball games, saying it was not his place to overturn a law that was approved by a local government with the public's safety in mind.

Former Mets pitcher John Franco even got in on the action.

Franco testified that when he throws batting practice for some high school teams that use non-wood bats, the ball seems to come back at him as soon as it leaves his hand.

"I don't even see it coming at me. It's dangerous. It's very, very dangerous...," he testified.
