To evenly distribute the dirt on the ball. Also, to push down the leather part so the seams will show more. The more the seams show the more the baseball will move during delivery. Sometimes it becomes a habit, and they feel they can get a better grip.


The seams on a baseball help the ball curve when a slider or some other breaking pitch is thrown. The seams catch the air and make the ball move when thrown correctly.


to have grip when someone throws the ball


place your two fingers (index+middle) on the seams of the baseball and then throw it


it's just yarn, but they are called seams. "The pitcher grips the seams of the ball"


The baseball is a round white ball with red seams and dimensions are 9 in diameter and 5 oz weight.


You get a buzz saw and cut it in half of you rip out the seams.

A lapped seam is one of the four major types of seams. The types of lapped seams are bound seams and Hong Kong seams.


When choosing a baseball you want a ball that feels good. Most people like high seams on the ball because it is easier to grip but, that is just my opinion. It all comes down to what kind of baseball you want.


well some of the ballls improved from having no seams to seams where to see what i mean u could go to google images and type in balls but that all i no hope this helps!


There is no difference between a High school baseball and a MLB baseball, let alone a High School ball and college ball. The circufrence of the ball is 9 inches and the weight is 5 ounces. Although, there is no difference in size between the baseballs, the seams of a high school and college baseball are raised. The seams are not raised on an MLB ball because if they were Jake peavys' curveball would probably break about a foot and a half instead of 6 and a half inches.


It allows the pitcher to impart spin on the ball. If balls were seamless it would be like trying to curve a raquetball. Although you can put a lot of spin on a raquetball, it doesn't really curve until it strikes the wall, then the spin changes the balls direction. The friction of the seams when released from the pitcher's hand helps curve, or in the case of a knuckle ball, jump through the air. The above is a consequence of a baseball having seams. The main reason a baseball has seams is that there is no way to 'weld' two pieces of leather together. The rules in baseball state (among other things about the ball) that the covering must be made of leather.


It means nothing! But however if it is like that it is an unofficial baseball as legit baseballs have only red seams/stitches! Those are typically designed for recreational use only!


The sweet spot is the shortest distance between two seams on a baseball. This location on the baseball is the most preferred for signatures by collectors because it is centered as to the point of view, and pleasing to the eye when displayed. The other "sweet spot" is were the manufacturing stamping is placed on the ball.


The most accurate pitch in baseball is the 4-seam fastball. You can throw a 4-seam fastball by: Placing your index finger and middle finger comfortably apart from each other across the seams where the seams are farthest apart from each other. Then, throw it as if you were playing catch.


Because they did not know that seams were important yet. They find out that seams are very useful so they then added seams


I am not sure why it has different sized seams but I know why it has seams. The seams help it spin . When you spin it it goes faster. try researching


Yes, when they can. Generally, youth coaches will show players how to throw with four seams because it is the most accurate way to throw a baseball with high velocity. Once a player has played a while (measured in years, not seasons) he should focus more on 'grabbing a seam' when throwing between positions to maximize velocity and accuracy while getting rid of the ball as quickly as possible.


No but it does matter where the ball is hit, if it is hit on the seams it will have more spin and won't go as far, and if it is hit with just smooth surface it will go farther with less spin.


Yes, they are called coal seams.



Scuffing a baseball, or roughing up part of its surface, creates turbulence. Turbulence changes the airflow around the ball, making it curve more dramatically when spin is applied. A baseball will curve naturally, due to the turbulent effect of the seams along the outside of the ball. Scuffing the ball intensifies this effect, and in the hands of a knowledgeable pitcher can be devastating. This is in part why umpires look for obviously-scuffed balls, and remove them from play.


Most sewing projects use plain seams. The other specialty seams are used for specific projects, such as decoration or strength.


an outside force we call Gravity is the main reason. The seams on the ball also cause the air pressure on the ball to change moving the ball on breaking pitches
