Just Some Fun Baseball Facts...

  1. 108 stitches on a Major-League Baseball
    • The balls are stitched by hand with 2 straight needles (not so sure they do it by hand anymore)
  2. Major-League bases are 15 square inches 
    • 38.1 centimeters
  3. 1 in 4 chances that a hot dog will be eaten in an American Ballpark, which originated in Iowa. 
    • The Hawkeye State raises more than a quarter of the nation's hot dogs. 

...these facts are from a little calendar so I'm not so sure if they are very accurate...


  1. Is it the size of the calendar that raises some doubt in your mind?

  2. yeah it was one of those ones with the blank paper on the back. like 4 or 5 inches square.
