Fernando

Fernando Valenzuela made entirely out of the innards of a single baseball... A few weeks ago I posted on my website a wishlist of weird materials that I wanted for future projects, one of which was "a baseball that had actually been used in a game." Not long after, I received an email from Dan, who said he could get me some real baseballs. He generously sent me 5 real, major-league baseballs that were all dirty and stained with grass. PERFECT. Since I know nothing about baseball I asked if he had any suggestions for who I should make out of one of the balls, for a trial-run. Fernando was his pick and this is the result. In exchange for his generosity and enthusiasm, I am giving him this one. I hope to do some more soon... : )
