Are wooden bats allowed in middle school baseball in tennessee?

The state doesn't determine what types of bats are allowed. It is up to the city's league rules whether or not wooden bats are allowed.

I've read a lot of local league Ground Rules, and I've never seen one that either disallows wooden bats or specifically allows only one or the other.
