A friend of mine sent me this link.

Very interesting...thought some of the people here might enjoy it.

Undoubtedly the reason he sent it was a story I told him earlier this week.

Nancy and I went to a local ballpark. We had been to dinner and were too late for the game, but were interested in the fireworks that were going to be set off after the game.

While waiting for the game to end just outside the stadium...a ball come flying over the first base fence (right over our heads)...and I set out to get the treasure.

It headed straight down the aisle between parked cars in the lot...and the damn thing never headed towards a car that might stop it. Just straight down the aisle.

I am chugging as fast as my 77 year old legs will carry me. At some point, I hear footsteps fast coming up behind me...and before I can completely look over my shoulder...a guy about 18 - 19 years old passes me like I am running backwards.

"Ahhh...man, I am glad I'm young," he laughs as he passes me.

He got the prize...I threw up my hands and slowly walked back to Nancy who is laughing...and shouting, "Run, Forrest, run" at me.

Anyway...enjoy the short video.

Thanks Frank, that was Really Interesting.

I love finding out how everyday items are made.

I think I would love working in a baseball manufacturing line. I could really get into being one of those stitchers, or most of the other jobs in the process.

BTW, I've watched some of those other "How It's Made" shows. I love them.

@Frank Apisa,
see, heres where Daves idea of being armed woulda come in handy. You wouldn't have to kill him, just let him get the ball and then jack him. ( I changed my mind about the outcome)
