Wood Bats vs Metal Bats

The Daily Herald out of Everett Washington has put out a very good article about college players adjusting to the wood bats in the lower levels of the minor leagues. They talk with Aaron Cunningham who played for Everett Community College and has become one of the top prospects for the Oakland A’s. The Everett Community College baseball program plays in the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges which is a all-wood bat conference. He believes that the conference helped him prove to scouts that he can hit effectively with wood thus rising his draft stock. The full article is available here.
