The history of baseball in the United States dates to the 18th century, when boys and admirers played a baseball-like game by their own made up rules using homemade equipment. The popularity of the sport grew and men’s ball clubs were formed in the 1830-50s. Now, the game is known as “America’s Pastime”.

This tutorial shows students how to draw a baseball, with tips for how to make that stitching look realistic. It starts with a plan for evenly spaced holes, and then rows of V-shaped stitches. Those that want to make a meticulous version copy can count the holes, if they wish. But others that just want a general version of the real thing will be fine with just estimating. Either way, having lots of those little stitches following the curve of the seam will look just like a real baseball.
