So far, it seems, the Yankees have been relatively isolated from the maple bat problem. While Johnny Damon in particular goes through bats like they’re bananas, we have yet to see anyone in the stands or on the field injured as has been happening throughout baseball. Now, MLB and the Players Union are going to attempt to do something about the maple bat problem, and Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan runs down Tuesday’s meeting of Safety and Health Advisory Committee. (Alyson Footer has a good write-up too.) MLB is being slow to act, and I just hope nothing too serious has to happen before the game is ready to make some changes.
