New bat rules expected to change college baseball

By Robert Hydrick - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Darton College is ready to open their season this Sunday against West Georgia Tech.

With just four sophomores on the roster, there will be plenty of new faces in the Cavs lineup this season.

One returning sophomore is pitcher Kevin Biblar.

The ace from last year's staff is expected to have some help on the mound this year.

This maybe a good year to have a strong pitching staff.

New rules means college bats this season will not have the power they have had in the last 30 years.

Darton coach Glenn Eames says the new bats hit just like wooden bats.



Glenn Eames said. "The main difference is that some of the balls that are in on the handle and will break a wooden bat are still not breaking this bat. So, you get some forgiveness there. Balls though are not jumping off the bat like they were the last couple two or three years."
