Is the manufacturing of baseballs bad for the environment?

    At this point you could argue that manufacturing anything is bad for the environment; a baseball is not any worse or better. The primary issue, in regards to environment, with the production of baseballs is the material used to make a ball. A baseball contains a small rubber ball in the center. Rubber must either be harvested from the Hevea Barsiliensis tree from Southeast Asia or produced with synthetic materials in another factory. Harvesting the rubber means an impact on the population of the Havea Barsiliensis tree and producing synthetic rubber means more pollution from factories. All production and manufacturing is harmful to the environment, manufacturing of baseballs is no different.
