New Jersey Man Provides Mud for Major League Baseball



There is a mud farmer in New Jersey that provides the mud that Major League baseball teams use to hand-rub on their baseballs. 

 

It's nice to see that not everything is high-tech these days and some things are still done the old-fashioned way.

Update 2019: Here is a Sport Illustrated article about mud farmers in baseball.

 

Update 2022: I found this video from a Philadelphia station. It's from 2011. The same "mud farmer" is featured:

Welcome To New Jersey Memories!

 

I'm so excited to start this blog. 

 

Today is 09/09/09 and I figured that it was a good day to start. 

 

I hope to share with you my happiness in residing in the great state of New Jersey! 

 

It is a beautiful state with many interesting places to see and things to do. 

 

There is much beyond the New Jersey Turnpike (which I rarely travel on) and the struggling cities. 

 

There is a reason why it is called the Garden State - the state has many beautiful rural areas. 

 

Anyway, in future posts I hope to show you why New Jersey is such a diverse and intriguing state!
