I wouldn't mind, though it seems more feasible for college. I never saw a single injury in 4 years of varsity that could be traced to a metal bat. I did have an inch long cut under my eye that was pretty nasty, but that was simply from a freak accident on the basepaths and goes to show there is always a risk involved in any kind of competitive athletics.
i saw a pitcher get his shinn broke from a line drive off of the bat

The income that a MLB organization receives compared to a college and high school program is no where near in the same ball park. Wood bats cost money about 100-120 for a bat that is more than just a piece of bark found in the back yard. Also with a wood bat you never know how many AB's you will get with a wood bat. One inside pitch off the handle and you are out 100+ bucks. With aluminum bats they are between 200-300 and can get you through a whole season without breaking. Hopefully these New Yorkers banning aluminum bats have a plan to come up with the lots more money required to switch to wooden bats.
