Bat Scan to the Rescue: New Clubhouse CT Scanner Helps Eliminate Exploding Bats
Date:6/23/2008

Phillip Halleck, co-director of Penn State's Center for Quantitative Imaging.

Data demonstrates raw maple may need to be chosen very carefully because hidden defects could cause breakage. The wood in maple bats is harder and denser than ash and supposedly more durable, but there is a greater chance of defect in a maple bat compared with a bat made of ash.

Hidden defects in the maple wood -- such as moisture or grain inconsistencies -- can cause dangerous breaks. When grading wood from ash, there's nearly absolute confidence the wood will make a non-dangerous bat. Since there are hidden defects in maple, that confidence cannot exist unless the bat is scanned.

While recent reports speculate a handful of measures are being considered at MLB's meeting on June 24 -- from an outright ban of maple bats to standardizing rules on the measurement of bat handles -- no reports about a maple bat defect identifier have been issued.
