This is an argument that comes up every single off-season at least once on this site about the use of Wood Bats vs Metal Bats. There is currently a case in a Montana court room where a pitcher was struck by a ball in the temple and died a few hours later when a blood clot formed. The pitcher’s parents are suing Hillerich & Bradsby which is the parent company of Louisville Slugger.

I am of the belief that Metal Bats are important and keep the game more interesting then it is at the professional levels. I have seen a few college games at lower levels played with wood bats and the game featured many broken bat singles or bloopers to the outfield. If these bats were used throughout the season at the D-1 level, then the same type of game is going to happen in my opinion.
