Metal Baseball Bats vs Wooden Baseball Bats

A really in-depth study of the physics is available at

My child wants to do a research paper on the subject of wood bats vs. metal bats, and whether the metal bat should be banned. I need to know if there are any books on the subject that can be used as a reference. The internet alone is not enough for this teacher.Karol Joslyn
