- Material: Double walled steel plate
- The stitches are 16" / 40.6 cm long.
- The surface area is 314 sq.ft. / 29.2 m2 (almost 2000 times larger than a real baseball.)

This ball is in proportion to the bat in Kentucky at the Louisville Bat Company.
Many volunteers helped create this - particularly David Porpealia who provided the raw product.
