The inside of a baseball looks nothing like you'd expect
You've surely heard baseball announcers rave about a player "hitting the cover off the ball." Rarely, if ever, does it actually happen. But it's definitely a sight to see!

Next up is a rubber casing, which contains a ball of solid cork. The result? This bullseye-looking thing!
Corked bats have been long since outlawed in pro ball. But corked baseballs? They're the only ones allowed.
