Ban Maple Bats NOW!


Recommended Posts

I'm not usually a big fan of what's written on yahoo sports but I agree with this guy, especially the first line written "Someone's going to die at a baseball stadium soon". Yes it may be a bit overexaggerated but I wonder how many people thought that when they lobbied to get mesh nets around a hockey rink prior to a 13 year old getting killed by a flying puck? Also why does it have to take someone dying for MLB and more importantly the Players Union to step in and do something about these maple bats? It took the Rockies minor league first base coach getting killed for them to put helmets on the base coaches, so why are we waiting, again, for something tragic to happen to do something? I don't care what these players say or how superstitious they are about their bats there needs to be a ban on these maple bats...ok I'm off my soapbox now...

thanks for reading
