Rawlings Official Major League BaseballsThe Spalding company produced National League baseballs, amd along with their American League Reach label were producing Major league baseball for about 100 years. The Rawlings company took over in 1977, and Rawlings have been making Major League baseballs ever since. During the 2000 season Rawlings introduced the newly designed official Major League baseballs that also features the MLB Silhouetted Batter logo. Changing from the Official American League, and Official National League baseballs, the Official Major League baseball replaced both balls that were used.

A Major League baseball has a very short lifespan. The average ball only lasts for six pitches. There are nearly 160,000 baseballs used each year during the regular season.

The average baseball remains in play for only five to seven pitches in a Major League game. After the game the baseballs that are taken out of play are used for batting, and fielding practice. Approximately 600,000 baseballs are used by all Major League teams combined during the course of a season. -Steven KeyMan

Official league balls are used in all major league games, regular season and playoffs. Baseballs used in the playoffs and World Series have special imprints on them to designate the event(s).

1950's Official Major League BaseballsThe value of the baseballs will vary depending on which league the baseballs are from, and the League president that is stamped on the ball.Official American League baseballs from the 1950's had a Reach Trademark and the William Harridge league president stamping until 1959 which had the stamping of League President Joe Cronin. They could have a value of about $200. for the 1959 baseballs and up to $400. for the older William Harridge stamped baseballs. The National League Spalding Trademark baseballs with the Ford Frick and Warren Giles stampings have a value of about $200.-$250. These price are general and will vary based on age and condition

To get baseballs ready for a major league game, they are rubbed with special dirt. This dirt allows the ball to be gripped better.

The teams keep them after the games for practice.

American League baseballs with the Reach Trademark had Red & Blue stitching, and the National League Spalding Trademark baseballs had Black & Red stitching up until about 1934/35 when in both league started using only red stitching. Reach was producing American League baseballs until Rawlings took over around 1970, and Rawlings have been making major league baseballs ever since.Your baseball could be dated by the name of the league president stamped on the baseball.
