Ash is known as the original Major League wood species and has appeared in millions of at-bats throughout baseball history, and has served as the preferred species of the majority of Hall of Famer players. Ash bats are generally lighter than both Maple and Birch species and the wider grain structure in Ash bats gives them both a lighter weight feel and more flexibility upon contact.
