Most wooden bats are made from ash.
Other natural materials used include maple tree wood, hickory wood, and bamboo. Hickory has fallen into disfavor because it is much heavier than other woods, while maple bats have become more popular recently. This ascent in popularity followed the introduction of the first major league sanctioned maple baseball bat in 1997. The first player to use it was Joe Carter of the Toronto Blue Jays. Barry Bonds used the bats the season that he broke Mark McGuire's single-season home run record in 2001 and Hank Aaron's career home run record in 2007.
Recently, Major League Baseball has debated whether maple bats are safe to use, due to the tendency for them to shatter.

*Hanging head in shame*
1. HASTY PUDDING
2. THE MARDI GRAS
3.Iceland--I didn't realize this was considered part of Scandinavia, (and my grandparents were born in Sweden!), although I knew the Vikings discovered it. Yikes!
4. "THE WIZARD OF OZ"
5. WASHINGTON, D.C.
6. Eric
7. Salvation Army--This is so obvious, yet all that would come to me was YMCA.
8. BORIS AND NATASHA
CRAP !!

I knew the answer to #4 but it just wouldn't come to me.
I need to go study now!

One day you're up, the next you're down. Sorry Barbara. If it's any consolation you still did a lot better than I did.
