Needham resident Richard Carey gave props to the Globe's coverage of the debate raging between aluminum vs. wooden bats in a Letter to the Editor today.
He's in favor of wood.
"If a baseball hit off the handle or shaft of an aluminum bat is capable of killing a pitcher, but a ball hit off the same location of a wooden bat can cause no more damage than a broken bat, wouldn't that fact alone make a metal bat more dangerous than a wooden one?" he wrote. "Wouldn't it be better to have a cracked bat than a cracked skull?"
