I'm more likely to die in war than doing drugs, drugs are ok to do.
I'm more likely to die from cancer than a car crash, driving at 100 mph is safe to do.
The idea that because something is safer than something else makes pitching safe is comical.
The idea of making pitching safer comes from the idea that recreational games are for fun, and people shouldn't be risking their lives outside of the normal sphere of risk. The game we see today via technology was not how the game was designed to be played at all. Poor comparison and even poorer theory on this topic.
