I just saw this video on Yahoo regarding the department of forestry researching why bats have been breaking. When I was growing up i was tought to have the “label” facing up so that I would be hitting with the “edge grain” portion of the bat. I found out immediately when I tried facing the “label” towards the batter. The bat broke. Bye Bye Eric Davis Louisville Slugger.

I thought the video was pretty neat, and to listen to someone talking about trees and wood grain never gets old.
