 Mass of a Baseball
Baseball was invented around the last quarter of the 1800s.
The weight of a baseball must be between 5 and 5 1/4 ounces (142 to 149 grams) and its circumference from 9 to 9 1/4 inches (22.9 to 23.5 centimeters).
From my experiment of weighing a baseball, the result came out to be 142.54 grams which fits within the accepted range of 142 to 149 grams.

In describing baseball in the late 1980s, the back cover of the green and gold book proclaims: “These are the best of times and the worst of times.” Well, for James’ fans, it was the latter.

I've never been much of a baseball fan and I was too young to read these early Bill James books when they were published, but I have greatly enjoyed reading the blogs of them and seeing how ahead of his time Bill was with the analysis of baseball.

Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire's eye or on the ball.  ~Jim Murray
Baseball, to me, is still the national pastime because it is a summer game.  I feel that almost all Americans are summer people, that summer is what they think of when they think of their childhood.  I think it stirs up an incredible emotion within people.  ~Steve Busby, in Washington Post, 8 July 1974
Baseball is a game dominated by vital ghosts; it's a fraternity, like no other we have of the active and the no longer so, the living and the dead.  ~Richard Gilman
