Arizona baseball hosts media gathering about new bats

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The U of A baseball team hosted a media gathering Monday afternoon and one topic that's flown under the radar, new bats.

The NCAA regulating the "ping" sound across the country.  New bats constructed to perform more like wood and less like the offensively-kind aluminum.

We'll probably see a reduction in the number of homers and cheap hits sluggers will hate it, pitchers will love it.  The NCAA thinks it'll make the game safer. The 'Cats sound like they know what to expect.
