The new rule in high school baseball that makes it illegal to use the BSER bats is just what the sport needed.
Sure there are fewer home runs being hit. Yes, scoring runs is more difficult. But in the end it is better for the game because games are being played more quickly and pitchers won’t have the amount of wear and tear on their arms because innings will go by quicker.
The real test is yet to come. And I believe the results will be positive. When teams advance past the regionals on June 9 then play a quarterfinal three days later watch for low-scoring games, at least more so than what we saw in the past. Going on the assumption that pitchers will be throwing fewer pitches, teams that reach the state semifinals should have more of their top pitchers available, or at least they should not have seen as much work.
I don’t think the top teams will be affected by the rule change as much as the average teams. If your team plays good defense and moves runners along as good teams do you will continue to score runs. Maybe the scores will be 4-3 or 5-2 instead of 8-4 or 9-6 but the good teams will continue to be successful.
