    How so? Aren't they the same by regulation?

    Somehow their stitching is raised. Apparently the regulations cease at nation's borders.

    But MLB teams go to Japan all the time to play teams over there. How can MLB allow equipment that is not regulation?

    Please understand that I don't watch MLB and couldn't care less about it. It irritates me no end that the playoffs and the WS come right in the middle of NFL season and pre-empt NFL games. But this question about Japanese baseballs caught my attention.

    Get over it. Major league baseball was around long before they invented the NFL.
