It's preference, however, ash is a better performing wood for Baseball bats. Maple bats require more water density to be removed from bat in order to make light enough to use. This causes the maple bats to become brittle and break easier. I love the Akadema and rawlings bats best. Both are hand selected.

Baseball Bats are made of Hickory. If maple was a harder material then it would be used instead.
