Re: The Pitching Helmet?
How about simply making aluminum or whatever the material really is these days behave more like wood? Is that really too much for manufacturers to do? design a bat that won't cause the ball to leave at ridiculous speeds?
just determine what speeds the ball leaves the wood bat at different spots, barrel, end of the bat, jammed etc. and make these composite bats match it. Why is this still a problem?
