I prefer wooden bats to metal bats not for safety reasons but because metal bats are a scourge on the game, much like the designated hitter. The "crack" of a wooden bat is as American as apple pie; the "ping" of a metal bat is as hollow as the taste of the $2.99 store-bought substitute.
Actually, metal bats are more dangerous. There's a reason they are banned above the amateur level.
No, I don't think this lawsuit is justified. But I do have a problem with idiots turning a classical American outdoor game into a real-life version of a video game. Juiced up bats, balls and players all need to be banned.

Wonder if someone will have to be killed before something is done about all the broken bats in MLB. Some of those slivers of wood are like daggers flying around the infield.
