    James Oddo has spent six years championing a cause he says is not that important. Yet, if the New York City councilman is able to turn his cause into legislation, it could set into motion a sweeping change in the way baseball is played at all youth levels nationwide.

    Oddo wants to ban the use of all non-wooden bats from game action in New York City high schools, both public and private. It is a public safety issue, he said, and one that the scholastic and sport's governing bodies have not addressed.

    Although it would be costly, I think in the long run it would be beneficial to the developing youngsters if they stuck with wood bats. Then you wouldn't have to worry about a prospect's hitting ability diminishing when restricted to wood bats at the professional level. Just my opinion...
