AggieVision :: New Bats, Same Offense


LAS CRUCES, N.M. - NM State head coach Rocky Ward talks about the difference in change from aluminum bats to the new BB-Core bats used in NCAA Division I baseball. He is teamed up with seniors Wes Starkes and Ryan Aguayo to give a demonstration and show what kind of a difference the new bat is making.
