Who is your favorite hitter and why?
Kirby Puckett. Hit for power and average. Defied the odds, got the most out of a frame most considered not the ideal for a baseball player. Was a fast player and defensively great in center field.
Who is your favorite pitcher and why?
Greg Maddux. Didn't have overpowering stuff, but was smart and hit his spots. The true definition of a pitcher, not a thrower.

I have 15-20 grade A maple billets. No defects, straight grain throughout. I am looking to get rid of them cheap at $20 per plus shipping.
