Metal Baseball Bats vs Wooden Baseball Bats


(2001)

Hey, I am doing a essay on metal bats and the causes that it has with major league players using them when the pitchers are throwing so fast. I need a ton of information on this so if you can help that will be excellent.

Ed. note: There are good responses to this question at the Physics Archive, and a Moment of Science, Adam.
A really in-depth study of the physics is available at www.kettering.edu/~drussell/bats.html, Why Aluminum Bats Perform Better than Wood Bats.
Update Jan 2014: The Kettering link is now broken.

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.
