"All you have to do is pick up a baseball.  It begs to you:  throw me.  If you took a year to design an object to hurl, you'd end up with that little spheroid small enough to nestle in your fingers but big enough to have some heft, lighter than a rock but heavier than a hunk of wood.  Its even, neat stitching, laced into the leather's slippery white surface, gives your fingers a purchase.  A baseball was made to throw.  It's almost irresistible."
- Dave Dravecky

(note: a baseball, outside the high school field, players already out for batting practice, ball smacking the bat and then sailing, in January... ahhh- yet another reason to love south Texas...)
