I guess it seemed like a good idea at the time, but the idea was shortlived.  Aug 2, 1938 - Bright yellow baseballs were used in a major league baseball game between the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Chicago Cardinals.  It was hoped that the balls would be easier to see.  The idea was so shortlived, it did not make it to the second game of the double header scheduled for that day.  Ok, folks, here is your chance to be a winner with the Classic Rewards Club.  Login to your account and enter the word "baseball" for your chance to win.  Good luck and thanks for listening!
