Wood vs. Aluminum: A Matter of Life or Death?


In the wake of the life-threatening injury suffered by a 12-year-old boy from Wayne, NJ, the Herald News examines the issue of wood vs. aluminum bats and whether it makes a difference between life and death. In early June Steven Domalewski was pitching in a Wayne PAL game when he was hit in the chest with a batted ball off an aluminum bat. The result has left him in a coma at St. Joseph's Medical Center in Paterson where he has shown improvement, but still has a long way to go. Sheila Miller also has a story about how many parents are using a new product called the Heart-Gard to protect their children.
