If only Tree Branches could Talk…

A tree branch fell from behind the backstop at Corning Field last winter.  I cut the branch down and kept it for firewood to use in my wood stove.  Imagine my surprise, while splitting wood the other day, when I found a baseball lodged in the branch.  How long has it been there?  Did it get placed there or was it a foul ball?  It has a story to tell; it’s too bad that trees can’t talk.
