Re: Composite vs aluminum. Which is better?
Funny thing about this conversation is that to win you have to hit and play defense. If you gave any of the old major teams ... ritches, Bell Corp, sunbelt, Steele’s, lighthouse, and so on. Composite bats and unlimited conditions like a World Series no current team could hang. You can say this or that but , the ball still went over the Disney scoreboard with aluminum, 50 + run games still happened, and some serious defense was played by much larger men. There were rockets hit often. Base hitters base hit and the bangers hit bombs. Now if you put aluminum in the hands of today’s hitters it may take them some time to catch up. The defense will be played. The big difference will be the amount of home runs hit by a lot of current teams. When teams back then were built to hit bombs
Just my opinion , I played in both eras and today is way easier
