Watch An Aluminum Bat Break At The College World Series. ALUMINUM.


We’ve all heard why metal bats are dangerous – a batted ball jumps off aluminum in a way that just doesn’t happen with wood bats. This, in some cases, has fatal consequences, which justifiably leads many to believe that aluminum bats have no place in baseball at all. Nonetheless, their use persists through the college level…but today, a moment from college baseball’s showcase event gave us all the more reason to think that maybe metal bats are more trouble than they’re worth.

Why? During today’s College World Series game between Florida and Vanderbilt (Florida won 6-4 to advance to the finals), an aluminum bat broke and flew into the crowd. An aluminum bat broke. The announcers could hardly believe it, we might not believe it if we didn’t see it, and we don’t expect you to, either, so here’s proof:

AN ALUMINUM BAT BROKE AND FLEW INTO THE CROWD. This went beyond dangerous – this mined the depths of the sympathetic nervous system for the most primal fear reaction humans can produce. And that’s for the people who weren’t even there. It didn’t appear anyone got hurt – a minor miracle – but the result hardly matters when a high-speed metal projectile flies into a crowd of people. The point is, it happened. It could happen again. Who knows what happens then? One thing we’re thinking won’t happen: us attending any game, ever, where metal bats are used.
