Japanese Balls Doctored

Now this is sleazy corporate behavior people will actually do something about. It’s been a home-run-happy season so far for Japanese baseball, in fact there have been 60 percent more home runs this year than last. Initially, in response to skepticism, Nippon Professional Baseball denied it had done anything to the baseballs. Then, on Tuesday, the NPB copped to its crimes, announcing it had in fact changed the official balls to make them go farther.
