Do you miss the PING or are you happier with the CLICK?

I like the new bats so far. We put up 12 runs with them. I don't think we will know for sure until we start playing good competition. Today has been a pitcher's duel

I don't necessarily mind the new bats or the 'click' sound. Seems more like pure baseball and a lot closer to the crack at the big league level. Leave the 'PING' to the Little League World Series and the kids.

I guess I'll play Devil's advocate and say that I miss the ping. To me, there are few better sounds that when a ball is squared up on an aluminum bat. I go back to watching guys like Gordon Beckham and Pedro Alvarez. The ping off their bats was like nothing I had ever heard.

All that being said, the new bats don't really bother me all that much.

Bring back the old bats! Having played Div 1 baseball, I know the players are not happy with these new bats. Its bringing college ball one step closer to the much slower & boring MLB game. College ball is supposed to be unique & everything that pro sports are not!

The change in bats didn't bother me at the games I attended this weekend. It was 75 degrees, I was sitting behind home plate, and my team won. After this winter, it's time for baseball, ping or no ping.

I like the new bats. Baseball was never meant to be a power-only game, IMO. It's a game of strategy and outslugging the other team was too common with the old bats (especially the late 90s bats). I'd love to switch to wood although that may be a little TOO much for this level and make it too pitching-dominated.
