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.
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.
