Mud and Sports?
by Rich Aguilera

It's that time of year again. Baseball playoffs! 

Wait a second, you say, i thought this was the Mud Guy, not David Robinson.  Ahh, but although I love all things nature, I'm also a big sports fan, too! 

Don't worry, I always find a way to spin everything into a nature related blog....

As you know, baseball would not be possible without one very important part of nature, trees!  Any bat used in the major leagues must be made of wood.  Most of them are made out from ash. 

Here is a picture of the steps taken to convert a piece of ash tree into a baseball bat.

If you think about it, many aspects of the sport of baseball rely on nature.  The nice soft grass in the outfield cut with perfect lines.  The infield gravel.  The nice straight chalk lines.  Even the baseballs!   Most baseballs have a cork center (nature), and are wrapped in yard (nature), and covered in leather (nature...sorry cows).

This is another great example that shows us how God's nature was provided to us for enjoyment.  

Enjoy the playoffs, but don't forget to enjoy the nature that makes it possible.  Also, don't just watch baseball, go outside and play, too!
