The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, better known to the civilised world as toilet paper, report that Chipper Jones might withdraw from the upcoming World Baseball Classic.

His 18-month-old son, Shea, had a serious intestinal virus and was in and out of an Atlanta hospital for a month. The toddler's condition has improved and stabilized, but Jones wants to make sure Shea is OK before deciding whether to go to Phoenix March 2 for the start of the United States' team training camp. --

Awwwww, god speed to Shea. Chippah can break a leg.

Asian Balls Are "Different

It doesn't take much more than a surface examination to see the main differences between the Rawlings WBC ball and the balls used in Asia. Cowhide, Rawlings' covering of choice since 1974, presents a challenge to pitchers who are accustomed to the horsehide balls used in Japan and elsewhere in Asia.

Although a layman may not notice the difference at first glance, a side-by-side comparison of the balls is telling. The texture is different, the size appears different and even the seams aren't the same."

Why would cow balls be like horse balls?

Jaap said...

Yeah, everyone knows horses run faster than cows and that speed bleeds through the hide in the fomentation process and makes the balls quicker as a result.(?)

I dunno.

It might explain Korea's domination in the Little League World Series all those years...
