Maple vs. Ash
To me baseball is the ultimate AMERICAN ball game. I used to play something similar, a local Norwegian ballgame, as a kid. Other than that, I have no relationship with baseball. Science on the other hand is my LIFE. So I am happy that I'm not the only one who apply a scientific angle on ABSOLUTELY EVERY SUBJECT. :-) Enjoy the maple vs. ash ballgame with the joker hickory as a featured extra.
