If MLB used metal bats...

If MLB used aluminum bats...how much further would home runs travel? Is there any data on this?

I made a bet in 2003 that the Devil Rays would win the 2008 World Series. Oh so close.

Not sure but I'd bet at least one fan fatality per year, probably more.

The coaches boxes would have to have a screen installed, or they'd need kevlar suits or something like that?

Lets just make it Home Run Derby, aluminum bats, golf balls, outfield walls at 1000 ft, and pitching machines. I'd watch. :-b

That would be pretty cool actually. Give the outfielders some modified lacrosse sticks to catch the ball and hurl it back to the infielders from 1000 feet out.
