Evolution of the Alluminum Baseball Bat




I'm doing an inquiry paper for my final in my last college semester. I need to know the various types of alluminum that have been used since the beginning of the alluminum baseball bat. I also need to know the cost of each bat, the cost of labor, who manufactures the bats (from the cheapest bat to the most expensive), and where I can find more information on the evolution of the alluminum baseball bat.

Searching the web may not be effective until you look up the correct spelling of the metal you are searching for information about, George :-)

Good luck.

An American complaining about the correct spelling of Aluminium. What is the world coming to? Personally I vote that we all revert to aluminum.

There are a lot of ways this metal is spelled, Mr. Murphy,

but google gave me

813 hits for 'aluminum baseball-bat' (most common American spelling),
153 for 'aluminium (most common British spelling)'
9 for 'alluminum (so George is seeing less than 1% of the entries)'
2 for 'aluminium...'
1 for 'allumium...'

So I probably should not have advised George to look up the 'correct' spelling, but a 'more effective' way to spell it smiley face
