Junk Ball Baseball (www.junkball.com) is a radically re-designed official sized plastic baseball that enables anyone to throw "junk" pitches including curves, fastballs, sinkers, risers, sliders and knuckleballs. The Junk Ball features a Dial Your Pitch ring and raised scuff marks that together let the pitcher change the way the ball moves toward the batter. The Junk Ball Backyard Sports brand was established by Little Kids, Inc. in 2005 to create and marketing outdoor sports toys and games that feature a new and exciting twist on play.


About the MLBPA

On behalf of its members, it operates the Players Choice licensing program and the Players Choice Awards, which benefit the needy through the Major League Baseball Players Trust, a charitable foundation established and run entirely by Major League baseball players.



About Junk Ball
