Where he messed up was the idea that softball risk should be compared to the risk of other sports. Nope, it should be compared to the same sport 25 years ago. Exit speeds are faster. Guys wear more protective gear. Simply due to the evolution of rules and equipment. The game of softball is gradually getting more dangerous to play, and that is the reason people are bringing up pitching rule posts and stuff. Football hasn't changed the ball and field up to make players run faster or throw it further. The equipment (ball, field goal posts, etc) has stayed the same. The only thing evolving is safety equipment and rules, being dumbed down.
