How A Baseball Is Actually Made

Christian Petersen

For all I know, the video I'm sharing today is one you've all seen: "Oh yeah, been there, done that." What I know is that despite being a passionate baseball fan for about 40 years, as well as a broadcaster, writer, or analyst of the game for about 25 of those, I had never seen -- or even heard of -- this video, or almost all of the information in it.

And it's truly amazing: A 5-minute journey showing how a baseball is manufactured. And I had no idea. I mean I could probably have told you about 5% of what's in this video. Literally 95% of it was news to me. And it's really cool -- at least I think so.

So I'm keen to know: Have you seen this before? Did you know how a baseball was made, down to the details in this video? And if this info is as new to you as it was to me, did you find it interesting?
