Ashes of an industry: A Pennsylvania tradition is dying, one baseball bat at a time

White ash bats from Pennsylvania and New York have been as prevalent and familiar in baseball as spikes. But soon, for the first time since at least the 1880s, the major leagues could be without any. And the mills that long supplied the bat-makers will either disappear or convert to woods like maple and birch.This year only 10,000 white ash billets will be produced for MLB bats at the Akeley mill, down from 25,000 in 2014, 50,000 in 2010.Entire article here:…See More

Amazing Library of Hitting Videos- Dustin Lind

Posted on April 17, 2018 at 12:56pm 0 Comments

I do not know Dustin Lind but greatly appreciate the time and effort he has put in while accumulating the hundreds of videos in this library. Actually, thousands of videos when you consider there are several videos of most players in each folder. This is a tremendous resource for any player, coach or parent. 

Be warned, you may end up spending hours watching…

Thank You Bill

Wish I had known about this site sooner as I am heavily entrenched in baseball and related ventures. Coming soon a revolutionary throwing training system I’ve got about 30 years of study into. What it teaches and how I came to discover it is only half of the picture because this information and device refines the highest level MLB player or can establish a young kid in minutes. I hope to debut it here.

Bill contact me offline if you could.
