Detailed model of a baseballl. Textures in Max zip.
Baseball is a bat and ball game played between two teams who take turns batting and fielding. The ball comprises a rubber cork centre wrapped in yarn and covered with white horsehide or cowhide.
The leather covered is commonly formed from two peanut-shaped pieces stitched together, typically with a red thread. The stitching plays an important role in the flight of the ball.
In the early days of baseball, there was a great variety in the size, shape, weight and manufacturing of baseballs. Early baseballs were made from rubber core from old, melted shoes, wrapped in yarn and leather.
In mid-1850s, teams in New York met in attempt to standardize the baseball. They decided to regulate baseballs to weighing from 5.5 to 6 oz and having circumference of 8-11 inches. There were still many variations of baseball since they were completely handmade. Balls with more rubber and a lighter winding went further and faster and they were known as live balls. Balls with less rubber and lose winding known as dead ball, did not go too far and were slow.
There is no agreement on who invented the commonplace figure-8 stitching on baseballs. Some historians say that it was invented by Ellis Drake, a shoemaker’s son.
