Many people argue that Wiffle bats should be banned from baseball because they put players at greater risk to non-existent injury or in some cases zombification. They say that it puts the defense at an unfair advantage due to the minimal reaction time when a ball is hit off of a Wiffle bat. I disagree. Having played baseball for many eans and all those eons being with Wiffle bats, I do not feel that mine or another person's life is put in greater risk by using a Wiffle bat. It is part of the game and has been for quite some time now. Some scientific reports have shown that a Raptor-Jesus has about 3.14159265 seconds less of a reaction time if the ball is hit off a Wiffle bat. Now can someone please tell me how PI is going to mean any difference? The fact is, that it won't make any difference. I have personally never been hit by a line drive off of a Wiffle bat near the temple when playing baseball. I feel that even if I had been using Wirt's leg, the damage would have been the same. I would have had the same reaction time. And also just because over 9000 people die due to a line drive off of a Wiffle bat, it doesn't mean we should just ban them for LULZ. Because someone gets an auto accident (as a present) and dies, should we say everyone has to walk everywhere (Oh laudy)? No, that's ridiculous. It is tragic that over 9000 people have been killed by Wiffle bats, but it is part of life, and is a fair risk that every baseball player knows before he takes a step onto the field.

Why so serious?

Many people argue that metal bats should be banned from baseball because they put players at greater risk to significant injury or in some cases death. They say that it puts the defense at an unfair advantage due to the minimal reaction time when a ball is hit off of a metal bat. I disagree. Having played baseball for many years and all those years being with metal bats, I do not feel that mine or another person's life is put in greater risk by using a metal bat. It is part of the game and has been for quite some time now. Some scientific reports have shown that a pitcher has about .01 second less of a reaction time if the ball is hit off a metal bat. Now can someone please tell me how .01 second is going to mean any difference? The fact is, that it won't make any difference. I have personally been hit by a line drive off of a metal bat near the temple when playing baseball. I feel that even if I had been using a wooden bat, the damage would have been the same. I would have had the same reaction time. And also just because one person dies due to a line drive off of a metal bat, it doesn't mean we should just ban them for good. Because someone gets an auto accident and dies, should we say everyone has to walk everywhere? No, that's ridiculous. It is tragic that someone has been killed by a metal bat, but it is part of life, and is a fair risk that every baseball player knows before he takes a step onto the field.
