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.

Maple vs Ash

Abstract:A maple bat and an ash bat were compared to see which one would generate a greater average ball speed. It was tested by hooking up the bats to a batting machine, then measuring the bat and ball speeds using magnets and electromagnetic coils. The ash bat generated more ball speed.
