Hand-Made Leather Baseball, Brown Chromexcel

Lemon Ball baseballs are hand made in Glen Rock, New Jersey. They represent an important transition in the baseball's history, from a home-made toy that appeared over 200 years ago to today's machine-perfect tool. They're noticeably softer than a regulation baseball, which is inspired by history: at one point baseballs were stuffed with rags and the rules of the game allowed for "soaking," or tagging a runner out by hitting him with the ball.

- Chromexcel leather from Chicago's Horween tannery
- White waxed linen thread
- Assembled in the historical "lemon peel" style
- Slightly smaller and softer than today's regulation baseballs
- Magnificent to look at, but intended to be used
- Will develop a beautiful patina with use

Made in USA (New Jersey)
