It is desired in most baseball leagues that the equipment players use over time will not change significantly in order to keep accurate statistics on players to be compared over many decades. This is essential to the legacy of the sport which makes the game more meaningful to fans. So when we decided to tackle the problem of adding material to the bat to make it safer, a key requirement was that this material could not alter the behavior of the bat. For example, if a bat and ball impact would cause a non-reinforced bat to break, then that same interaction is desired for the reinforced bat in order to maintain continuity of the equipment used by the players in accordance with previous equipment.
WebWrap was designed to provide safety and not to significantly alter hitting performance or bat strength. WebWrap provides only the necessary reinforcement to prevent broken bat shards from becoming airborne.
