Why Do Baseball Players…

I’ve been spending a lot of time during the past two weeks watching baseball. This is pretty unusual for me since I’m not typically a baseball fan. There’s just something about the playoffs that gets my attention. Since I’m not a huge fan, there are still a lot of things about the sport that are new to me. I’ve even learned about a couple rules this week that I never even knew existed! There’s a lot more to baseball than just running around the bags it seems. Anyway, my quest for baseball knowledge has (obviously) led me to Google. Tonight I was trying to find out why baseball players use wooden bats instead of metal ones. As I started to type my question, Google Suggest provided a bunch of other questions that people have asked. Ironically, many of these same questions have crossed my mind while watching the game. It’s amazing what you can learn from Google Suggest!

How many of you have wondered the same things?

Worst blog post Evar!! Made me do so much work. Some answers would have been nice ;)


Wood bats because its harder to hit homeruns.

Managers wear uniforms because some used to play on the team.

Chew/Spit to keep their mind on something while they are just standing their. Becomes habit over time.

Necklaces have titanium plates in them that are supposed to help with muscles/circulation etc.

Grab themselves to fix their cups.

Hopefully I saved some people some Google-ing. :)
