Wiki

Baseballs have been around longer than a lot of us have been alive, and yet we take them for granted. Just imagine if they would not have invented the base ball, what would all of those high priced players swing at. Then where would they be.  They have given us a lifetime of enjoyment, from the times that you played ball with your father, until the times that you played ball with your pets. The baseball has brought everyone some type of enjoyment. Too bad they are not the only sport that uses one, that is solely made in the US. The only sport that uses a ball made totally in the US is Football. Since the late 1800's, when George and Henry Rawlings started producing the baseball in 1969, the baseball has been made in Puerto Rico and Haiti because of the low cost and tax benefits that they had to offer. These are offered at just about every major sporting goods store for a small price of 1.99 for the cheaply made ones, to 19.99 for the official MLB type. The main difference that I can see between the cheap ones and the expensive ones, is the special mud from Mississippi, that they coat the official game balls in. After these are coated in mud they are put in a humidor to keep them pliable until the game.
