Why don't they use aluminum bats in Major League Baseball?
Professional baseball rules require the use of wooden bats only.
Generally, a human can hit a baseball faster and farther with an aluminum bat than with a wooden one because of the elasticity of the material. Statistics also show that balls coming off of aluminum bats create more injuries. This is why they are considering banning aluminum bats in college and high school baseball.
Baseball bats are made from wood. White ash is the most popular wooden bats and maple bats are common also. There are also aluminum bats. Aluminim bats are made out of analloy using aluminum with other metals with aluminum/magnesium being the lastest great aluminum bat. Other alloys have been used and will keep being used as technology continues in this area
The state doesn't determine what types of bats are allowed. It is up to the city's league rules whether or not wooden bats are allowed. In my own opinion, any time aluminum or composite bats are allowed, I would be using one, because the BBCOR on an aluminum or composite bat is much higher than wood, and if I'm the only person using a wooden bat in the league, everybody else has an advantage over…
