Recently a friend of mine by the name of Steve Bratkovich published a book that deals with forestry, wood, and baseball. The book is entitled The Baseball Bat: From Trees to the Major Leagues, 19th Century to Today. It was quite a long and challenging process, but Steve was able to combine two topics that he loves, trees (wood) and baseball. He turned the manuscript in to the publisher 16 months ago and it finally hit-the-streets.
Steve is donating all author royalties to charity, primarily Cerebellar ataxia research (which is the neurological disease the author has).
Thanks for your support.
