    Nice report on the SW kid that had the unfortunate eye injury and the potential connection to “hot” aluminum bats. Another key element to your story might be that Little League International has jumped on board with this being a potential problem by changing the upper player age level for little league size field play so as to protect against the increased potential of bigger stronger kids swinging these bats. Little league has changed the age birthdate deadline from May1st to December 31st (effective 2018) which means no player who turns 13 years old during his/her final little league season is eligible to play little league anymore.

    Just have to think the aluminum bats are all about $$ and sponsorships first and safety second. What a shame that Little league has had to change the fence distances, the player age limits, the type of baseballs, protective equipment like eyewear and chest protection, and has ignored perhaps the biggest culprit to safe and competitive play – the aluminum baseball bats and its big business profits.
