Recently there has been a lot of questioning if college baseball should use aluminum bats.

Yes, aluminum bats can have cool designs, but are they too dangerous? Aluminum bats hit way harder than wooden. And one day, someone is going to get hit by a line drive and get seriously injured or even die.

People have died and gotten critically injured by wooden bats, now imagine an aluminum bat. Take Juan Encarnacion for example. He got hit in the eye by a foul ball with a wooden bat, and it practically ruined his career. Now imagine if the bat were aluminum—he probably would be dead.

Personally, I love aluminum bats, but I don't think college baseball players should use aluminum.
