Jump for joy! - bat pullover
Saturday was a good afternoon for first-place baseball in any stadium. Yet in new Yankee Stadium, again very low on those dedicated regulars who made the old, affordable one a fabulous fanhouse, the sound could be mistaken for that of a museum, a wake, or something less than awake.
Bats are present throughout most of the world, with the exception of extremely cold regions. They perform the vital ecological roles of pollinating flowers and dispersing fruit seeds; many tropical plant species depend entirely on bats for the distribution of their seeds. Bats consume insect pests, reducing the need for pesticides. The smallest bat, and arguably the smallest extant mammal, is Kitti's hog-nosed bat , which is 29–34 mm (– in) in length, 15 cm ( in) across the wings and 2– g (– oz) in mass. The largest bats are a few species of Pteropus and the giant golden-crowned flying fox , Acerodon jubatus , with weights of up to kg (4 lb) and wingspan up to m (5 ft 7 in).
