Don’t quote us on it (yet), but it looks like Birch has officially passed Ash as the second most used wood in MLB. With Ash under threat as an entire species due to the invasive Emerald Ash Borer beetle, which kills Ash trees by the millions, Birch may be the knight in shining armor for players who enjoy the forgiveness (off the end of the bat) of Ash. Its in the hands of many of the best hitters in baseball, including Khris Davis, who swings his own signature Rawlings model.
Davis has big-time pop with a 34 inch, 31.5 oz bat. You can shop Rawlings Birch at the link.
