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.
When swinging an Ash model it is important to have contact on the straight grains. You should always swing with the center brand label facing straight up or straight down. This method will ensure that you are hitting on the strongest side of the bat for maximum performance and durability.
