The Ole Ball Game

Why are baseballs saved during a game

Anonymous asked:Some baseballs are catalogued during a game by someone who places sticker on the ball. Why do they save them?

Rick answered: Thank you for your question.

Generally speaking, when a baseball gets saved during a game, it is because an individual has reached a historic mark in the game.

It can also be for a new player who gets his first pitching win, ho hitter, first major league hit, or first home run, etc.

Can be for any player who breaks a standing record during a particular game.

All of that is a part of the history of the game, or of the individual effort, thus recorded.

Yours in baseball,
