happy baseball season opening

and, why yes....the sport is being affected by climate change.
the crack of bats this time of year means two things: baseball is back and winter is over.

but major league baseball's spring soundtrack relies heavily on wood from white ash trees treasured for strength and flexibility. And it may soon sound different as a tiny beetle threatens the northern pennsylvania stands that for more than a century have supplied wood for bats.

experts say climate change may alter just how far north and south the tree-killing pest will spread. northern pennsylvania is right in the emerald ash borer's sweet spot.

"if climate change reduces those extreme cold temperatures in northern states, which can kill them, it may allow it to spread north faster," said dan herms, a professor and entomologist at ohio state university. "But surely they'll get to where louisville slugger is." - climate change

The alternative is Canadian maple. Joe carter used it with the Blue Jays and Barry Bonds also used canadian maple but then he also used performance enhancing drugs.

It's snowing this morning in Minnesota. I'm not too concerned about climate change making things warmer here. This is the longest, worst winter I've seen here.

I'm looking for a few bugs in my post. But I think I should have someone look and point out it.
