Rubber cleats are always safer than metal cleats because it is softer and has a less chance of injuring someone.
Metal cleats allow you to get better traction on the dirt as the dig into the dirt better than rubber cleats do. They also allow for better and faster changes of direction. They help to accelerate as they dig into the dirt rather then running on top of it, meaning you have more to push off of.
Metal is better because metal lasts longer and provides better traction. Safety is the only drawback. Fielders can get hurt when a runner slides into base with metal cleats. It will also do a lot of damage getting stepped on by someone wearing metal cleats. The only reason to use plastic is for artificial turf or because the rules forbid metal.
The difference is that baseball cleats are heavier and most ive seen have metal. Lacrosse cleats are shorter, better, and lighter than baseball cleats. Lacrosse cleats are a mix between soccer and football cleats. And it feels o so right.
I think you are talking about cleats. If that is the case then yes, they are safer than metal but wear out sooner. Also the shoe must be the interchangeable kind.
it depends on u and for me Adi power cleats are better
F50 cleats they are the best Diego
For youth Baseball it probably doesn't make that much difference, but for adult baseball (high school ball and higher), metal baseball cleats are allowed and are more effective than plastic football cleats. Plus, they don't wear down as easily.
plastic is better than rubber
Yes it is. Rubber can be bend wherelse the metal cannot!
my best bet would be cleats for grass but sneakers for black top
