Ash is still used as well as maple and hickory although hickory isn't as popular because the bats tend to be heavier and slower.

What some don't know about the Yankees/Royals game is that the Royals actually won the game. KC protested the disallowance of Brett's homerun. The protest was upheld and the teams had to continue the game later in the year with KC up 5- 4. The Yankees failed to score in the bottom of the ninth.

Was watching the game on TV - Don't remember hearing the dialogue, but reading lips was pretty easy. Don't recall the words, but pretty sure it was not complete sentences [emoticon] [emoticon]

Wooden bats are still made at the factory in Louisville, KY. Great tour available too.

Most, if not all of their non-wood bats are made in China.

Unless there is some remote site, the factory and museum I toured a couple years ago in downtown Main Street:

The factory they took us to (about 20 years ago) was across the River in Clarksville. May have moved back. My bad!

College, High School, and Little League use metal bats because they are less expensive and don't break. IT's about the money.

We tried to go to the wood bats in Little League a few years ago. NO DICE ... too costly the BoD stated. Stay with metal.

No one takes into consideration that metal bats are more dangerous, the ball comes off the bat much faster and longer distance. Kids, especially at the younger levels can get hurt easier.
