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.
