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.
if your playing on wet grass then yes
Metal conducts heat better than plastic.
because the plastic is liter than the metal
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.
I have found that metal conducts heat and cold better than plastic.
Rubber cleats are always safer than metal cleats because it is softer and has a less chance of injuring someone.
We find that metal is a better conductor of heat than plastic or wood.
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 a better conductor of heat than plastic because metal has alot of electrons which make them a good heat carrier. Unlike the metal, plastic don't have alot of electrons.
This is because metal rusts. Also metal conducts heat more than plastic. :)
Yes. Plastic is a better insulator of both heat and electricity.
