Aluminum bats lighter and easier to swing, a ball that might be fouled back on wood could be hit into play with the aluminum.

So a 31-oz aluminum bat is lighter than a 31-oz wooden bat?

Epic. :D

Let me see if I can shed some light on this. Hitting is hitting. You either hit the ball or you miss the ball. A foul tip is a foul tip. A strike out is a strike out. The bat makes no difference. Aluminum bats are the same length and weight as wood bats. Either one requires good contact. Aluminum bats may hit balls harder and faster but you still gotta hit the ball at some point.

I think I need to get Casey Stengel to explain my point.

Let me take a run at it... An aluminum bat is easier when it comes to getting "good wood" on the ball. It's more forgiving if you don't make perfect contact. So a ball that might be a foul tip or fouled off with a wood bat might end up being put in play with an aluminum bat. Does that sound like what you were getting at?
