I'm quite certain they do not in any way tamper with the baseballs other than rubbing them up with a special clay. However, years ago the late Joe Engel, then owner of the Class AA Chattanooga Lookouts, froze a number of baseballs prior to a game during which a lucky fan would receive a house if his or her ticket stub number was selected. Engel knew there would be an over-flow crowd for this game, meaning he would have to rope off the outfield for the spill-over of fans to stand. He also knew there would likely be a number of balls hit past the rope and kept as souvenirs by the fans. Therefore, he put the baseballs in the freezer to reduce the distance they would travel, thus preventing the loss of balls to the crowd which, incidentally, numbered better than 20,000, a record that might still stand for a game in the Southern League.
yes, but I can't remember if it was Minnesota twins or the Angles/ I remember seeing it on T V so it wasn't all that long ago
Umpires are always check how many baseballs they have, and never let it get below 3. They will get replenished by a batboy or other appointed person.
At least five full innings, If he leaves the game before that but with the lead, he is not the winner, the umpires can give the win for whom ever they want to. Actually, it's the official scorer, not the umpires, who make this decision.
yeah, did you ever make ice cubes before? you use tap water.
Doesn't matter, its already cooked. If you aren't going to it it for a while you can freeze it to keep it fresh (as long as it is sealed) and take it out to reheat when ever you want to eat, repeating until its gone. I recommend slicing it before you freeze it for easy portions.
No The Sun is a ball of hot gas which cannot freeze. Absolutely not. If it did freeze ( Which will never happen) We would freeze.
No, never ever ever ever leave any metal in your food or on your food when you refridgerate or freeze!
The National League Spalding baseballs along with the American League Reach Baseballs (owned by Spalding) were used in Major league baseball for about 100 years until Rawlings took over in 1977, and Rawlings have been making major league baseballs ever since.
A baseball? We didn't train to throw baseballs... hand grenades, yes, but baseballs have no value in combat.
History states that Ty Cobb fought several umpires during his career, none on the field of play. This was at a time when umpires were shown very little respect and it was not unusual for players to attempt to intimidate umpires on the field. If players tried to do something like that in today's game they would be suspended immediately and probably for a very long time.
Did Hank Aaron ever sign baseball Henry Aaron?
Enough to make about 100 cups of coffee. I think you'd puke before you ever ate that much of it.
Water expands when frozen thus widening the crack ever deeper and splits the asphalt's crack even more than before .
Baseballs are routinely hit out of Wrigley Field in Chicago and AT&T Park in San Francisco.
No. The Nile river is located in Africa and near the Sahara dessert. The climate would not permit it to freeze.
No. The temperatures in the tropical rainforest are too high for it to freeze. At most, there might be hailstones from a tropical storm.
normally they get $35 a game.. here in Massachusetts that is what we pay our umpires. Actually, the Little League rulebook states that all umpires must be non-paid volunteers. The correct answer should be that a little league umpire has a salary of zero dollars. This is true. As someone who has been an umpire in a Little League World Series I can verify (per the Little League rulebook and Operating Manual) That LL umpires are volunteers and should take no compensation. If you have ever taken any money to umpire a Little League game you will be banned from ever umpiring in a state tournament, regional tournament, and a Little League World Series should LL International find out. Many of us, however, are also umpires for several other umpire organizations for higher level ball that do pay umpires rather well.
Very rarely. And in the cases where it does, it is because the umpire goes to the other umpires on the field and asks them if they saw the play differently.
Dickie Bird and Tom Spencer were elected to stand in the final of first ever played Cricket Worldcup
yes it did twice in the 1920's
Sure, but nothing ever taste's as good as when it was fresh
the river is frozen for three months every year
