Eleven-year-old Ben Gephart was pitching for the Henderson Mavericks on September 11, 2010, when the batter hit a line drive with his aluminum bat. The ball, which was going up to 80 mph, hit him on the left side of his head, fracturing his skull and paralyzing his right hand. After emergency brain surgery and 30 staples in his head, Gephart may be able to return to the pitching mound one day, but Ben’s father and professional baseball instructor discuss the safety of aluminum bats.
