Maple Baseball

Baseball bat question[s]?

When did everybody start using maple baseball bats? Why do players usually use them over the traditional ash (I think that's right) bats? And why do some people dislike them?

PLease answer as many as you know

I'm gonna have to respectfully disagree with previous answer: I make baseball bats out of both maple and ash. Maple is more dense AND heavier than ash. A 33" bat in maple is 2-4 ounces heavier than an ash bat, which is significant. The weight difference is one of the complaints against maple. The increased density also makes maple a little more brittle than ash. But, if you connect one on the maple sweet spot, it's a rocket!
