Aluminum bats can cost up to $250 and can go any higher than $400.” Wooden bats being less expensive by a few hundred dollars can save the college more money than buying eight to nine aluminum or composite bats for a whole season. Finally the last key piece of evidence is“ Metal baseball bats are more costly because of the material used in processing the bat. Since some of these metal are not very common many stores that sell them raise up the price for metal bats.” Since wooden bats are made out of wood, the cost of them are not so high because wooden bats are made from trees which is located almost everywhere in the United States. By having materials easily at the ready for baseball bats to be made it brings down the price of baseball bats. Having wooden bats be introduced to college level it will save a great amount of money for colleges to use that extra money into somewhere else
