RESPECT FOR THE ELDERLY Back

The oldest piece

of equipment

in a game

is the bat

Cut from an Ash treeĀ 

50 years old

Seasoned for 2 more years

then finally rounded into a

Bat

So a 25 year old player

holds a bat

twice as old as he is

That is why it is so sad

an inside pitch

in one second

can splinter a bat in half

ruining a half century
of work.
