One of my contacts at MLB just sent me the official list of commemorative balls for the 2010 season.
There are six balls that will actually be used in games/exhibitions…
1) Target Field inaugural season
2) All-Star Game
3) Home Run Derby
4) Home Run Derby gold ball
5) Futures Game
6) World Series
…and two more that will only be used for ceremonial first pitches and sold as collectors’ items:
7) Opening Day
8) Jackie Robinson Day
And there you have it — no surprises, but hey, I’m just glad to have received the official list in advance. What do you think of it? Any ideas for other commemorative balls that MLB could’ve decided to make for the 2010 season? Any random commemorative ball ideas in general?
