Break a Bat, Plant a Tree

I haven't been traveling too much lately, and have been working in front of the computer for the last month or so. Therefore I havent had much time to take photos, or get in the mindset of writing about traveling.

I did come across this article about trees and the Minnesota Twins that I wanted to share. The Twins plan to plant 100 trees in Minnesota State Parks for every bat a Twins pitcher breaks.

"The Twins claim that on average, a team breaks one bat every game. That would result in 16,200 new trees planted on Minnesota state parks and trails as a result of Break a Bat, Plant a Tree."

I think this is a great program, and I hope more teams start doing things like this.
