My name is Jeffrey. I really like to play sports. My favourite sport is baseball. In school I have played on the volleyball team. Some community activities that I take part in are baseball leagues and church youth activities. Some of my favourite interests and hobbies are playing sports, reading, learning how things work and learning about and working with electronics. I am not sure yet about my career plans, but I would like to be an engineer or physiotherapist. Some awards and achievements that I have achieved are wining a runner up trophy in all-stars for my baseball league, making the volleyball team for my school, and wining multiple medals on a soccer team.

Abstract:Does a corked bat make a baseball have greater average speed than a regular wood bat? The project hypothesis says that if cork is added to a hollowed out wood bat , then it will generate more ball speed than an unmodified wood bat. Based on the results of the experiment, the hypothesis was accepted. Corked bats generate greater average ball speed.
