What is a Junk Ball anyway? It’s a pitch that controls the movement of the baseball and allows the pitcher to throw off a batter’s timing – such as knuckleballs, curveballs, and sliders. The more junk balls a pitcher can throw, the more likely they are to strike out their batter. Now, for the first time, Junk Balls are getting wild with the Junk Ball Wild Pitch Collectible Balls. With a dozen different designs, and unique marbling and hydro-dipping manufacturing techniques, no two are alike. Packaged in fun collectible blind bags, consumers will receive balls at random. There are six common balls with names like World Champs, USAyy and Garbage! Lucky collectors might pick one of the five rare balls such as High Cheese, Ruby or Crash Test. Incredibly lucky ones will browse the aisles at Dick’s Sporting Goods and grab a limited edition Bone Rattler.
