Riddle Me This #1

This is the first in a series of Riddle Boxes to be placed by myself and my nieces. Before each clue is a riddle. Find the box, find the answer.

RIDDLE#1:
I am used to bat with yet never get hit. I am near a ball that never gets thrown. What am I?

CLUE:
From the parking lot head toward the Military Museum and go over the bridge leading to the museums entrance. Just afterwards turn left and cross a small lawn heading toward a giant willow tree growing on the banks of Spring Creek. Just before the tree is a low stone wall, step over the wall and onto the path.

Follow the path as it winds along the creek. You will pass a broken cement dam spanning the creek and go through a small grassy break in the woods. On the other side of the clearing continue along the footpath until you come to a covered manhole set just aside from the path.

Facing away from the creek count 14 paces North East, into the woods. Here you will find a single large slanted boulder sticking out of the ground. The letterbox is hidden in a crack, covered by slabs of rock.

If you enjoyed this find check out our second box - Riddle Me This #2 - now hidden ahead, further along Spring Creek path.

NOTES:
This is a rather pleasant path through the woods around the Pennsylvania Military Museum however it can get a bit slippery in spots when the weather is rough. Care should be taken if you are bringing small children.
