The 2000 baseball made by Rawlings for the major leagues is held on
the warning track at the foot of the left field scoreboard at
Fenway Park in Boston, May 10, 2000. Jim Sherwood, a mechanical
engineering professor at the University of Massachusetts' Lowell
campus, has been commissioned by major league baseball to test the
ball to make sure it meets the specifications spelled out in the
rule book. Batters hit a record 931 homers in April, 105 more than
in the first month of the 1996 season, causing some baseball fans
to say that the new balls are juiced.

a study commissioned by major league baseball. Sherwood is checking
to see if juiced baseballs are to blame for the increase in home
runs this season.
