Re: Middle Shots Video
300 ft fields make perfect sense if the bat and ball combo fits the context. The current bat and ball combo does not fit that context. Expanding the playing field dimensions to accommodate the current bat and ball combo works better than 300 in the current context but still does nothing to address player safety.
It's also where the open market has taken the game. It's possible nothing will change until the system is shocked by a catalyst such as a high profile death.
Hopefully helmet technology will lower those odds to near 0 but it's probably only a matter of time before someone takes the wrong ball at these speeds to the neck or heart.
