MLB Buys Rawlings From Newell Brands

Newell Brands Inc. is selling its Rawlings sporting-goods business to Seidler Equity Partners and Major League Baseball for $395 million, the latest transaction the consumer-brands conglomerate has reached to trim its portfolio and improve its operations…..

Rawlings, based in St. Louis, was founded in 1887 and includes the Rawlings, Miken and Worth brands. MLB said it is “particularly interested in providing even more input and direction on the production of the Official Ball of Major League Baseball.”

Rabbit Hole: Centering the Pill

In any case, I decided look a little bit at some of the lively ball discussions of the past. I thought it would take a few minutes. It took a little bit longer than that.

Down the rabbit hole we go to look at a brief history, real and imagined, of the rabbit ball.

Very lengthy but fascinating.  Bring on the scientists!
