It is my belief the MAJORITY of softball players would love to go back to an era where the only way the cheaters could get an advantage is to stick a needle in their azz/PED up.
It might take some tweaking..no CTK sorority members I am not talking about your sorority sisters dance routine ...
What I mean by tweaking is.. setting a standard you want to create in average batted exit ball speed and then building the wooden bat and ball combo to achieve it. Bat length/weight and ball size core/comp.
The only issue is..some associations would need to give up their almighty bat license money...then again..at the rate it’s going... that licensing fee is a diminishing return anyway. Heck..maybe with a durability issue more wood bats would be purchased or just maybe since wood is so cheap..increase the license fee on wood bats.
Anyway...something needs to be tried to help the game.
