But What Will We Use To Beat On The Brat?


It's Wednesday—time for the New York City Council to do something stupid!

The New York City Council today is expected to vote today on a bill that would ban metal bats from high school baseball games. The measure was unanimously approved by a committee Monday.

Supporters of the bill say aluminum bats are a safety hazard because the ball ricochets off the bat quicker than off a wooden bat. But others say there's no evidence to prove metal bats are more dangerous than wooden ones.

Plus, parents know that baseball is a gateway to drug abuse. This sailed through committee, but it might meet resistance. From the latest report:

Mayor Michael Bloomberg has also expressed skepticism, saying a ban may not solve the problem. He has not said whether he'll veto the bill.

Yes, even Bloomberg is against it.
