Wow, it looks like there was a red tatoo of a baseball on your back, don't know how you finished the inning, let alone kept going.
Wood would definately be the way to go, but whether or not I see that happening I don't know.
Not only would it make pitching inside effectively and often possible, but it would really force hitters to learn how to hit.
For one thing I know scouts would absolutely love hitters switching to wood because there wouldn't be any more kids being absolutely roping the baseball in college, and never doing anything in proball because they don't know how to use a small sweet spot of wood.
A great article written can be found here:
It discusses are the reasons that college should be wood, and why it may or may not happen.
A lot of what it discusses is about coaches not wanting to loose their cushy sponsorship deals with companies.
The danger level for a pitcher is rediculous, even in high school there are some pretty scary shots, however in High school a lot of kids have yet to learn to drive it up the middle hard, and are still dead pull on any pitch.
I can't remember what state it was, but I want to say somewhere in the North East they use wood in High School because a pitcher was actually killed by a comebacker (not trying to scare anyone).
On another note, I believe that the Arizona Juco baseball league uses wood bats. One of the guys on the University of Kentucky came over from that, and they talk about how he absolutely rips the ball every time at bat because he has been using wood.
Basically from that I mean, safety is a definate reason, and improved skill is a huge plus.
