Think MLB is in denial about this like with so many things. When we visited the Louisville Slugger museum a few weeks ago, I asked about this. Our tour guide totally blew off the question saying the data didn't show bats breaking any more frequently now than years ago and a bunch of babble about maple versus ash. At minimum. the trend to narrow the handles while increasing barrel diameter to increase sweet spot is an issue. Agree it's a dangerous situation and fear it's going to take some people getting seriously hurt before they really do something about it.
