A very officially loved ball.
That brings back memories. And taped bats too. Ahhh… the good old days. :-)
You don’t say, CB! Other balls wouldn’t be a patch on it.
If you keep that up CB you will be playing softball for the season opener!
I remember those days – A new baseball costs 25 cents. No one had that much so when the stitching started falling apart, dad always had some electrician tape we could use. (It only cost a nickle a roll) If you did it “just right” you got another couple months out of it. And by that time we would have collected enough bottles to ‘trade-in’ to buy another new “official” baseball. A few years later along came Little League baseball and things were never the same. Always throw in some organizing adults and some “genius” business men and soon you have soccer mom’s with not enough time on their hands and dad’s who live in a fantasy world. js
When I was a kid I thought that’s how balls came. Also bats were fixed with electrical tape.
good for you, Charlie Brown
