Ultimately, it is your own personal preference but each has their own characteristics. Maple is denser than ash and has a tighter grain, making the ball jump off the bat very quickly. Ash is 20% less dense than maple and flexes. When a ball hits an ash bat, the wood compresses and has a spring board effect. The wood grain in maple bats will compact and get harder until they eventually explode while the wood grain in ash will slowly separate over time causing the bat to get softer or parts of the bat to flake off.
