How it's made....MLB baseballs - video

Unread postby danwismar » Mon Jul 08, 2013 11:16 am

Not sure how long this video has been around, but they say it's the first time cameras were allowed to film the process of manufacturing baseballs....Remarkable how labor intensive this process is...including the yarn-winding, and of course the stitching...each one hand-stitched...from the looks of it by Asian workers somewhere...probably making 50 cents an hour...

Cool video. I thought that baseballs were hand sewn and there was a controversy over it some years back. Did they to back to hand sewing or do it just for this video?
