We built a machine to evaluate the durability of our baseballs. Here are three balls that have been pitched over 10,000 times at speeds of 100+mph in our lab. They look a little beat up but otherwise they work just fine.
First Look at Android
This was the first time we had seen our app running on the Android platform. It was really exciting to see it and know we were getting close to being ready to launch our product.
