Hand-Braided Rope Bracelet made from Yarn Baseball Windings - 8.5" - Washington State University - NCAA Baseball

Curveball Keepsakes


This hand-braided rope bracelet is made with hand-dyed wool yarn from inside an official NCAA baseball that was found behind Bailey-Brayton Field on the Washington State University campus in Pullman, WA in May of 2019. 

The baseball was found on a non-game-day and the wear on it (the Pac12 logo is mostly worn-off) suggests it was probably a practice ball.

  • There have been 32 former WSU baseball players who played in the Majors
  • WSU baseball's most successful alums include John Olerud, Ron Cey, Aaron Sele, Scott Hatteberg, and Tom Niedenfuer

  • Former Cougar and Major Leaguer Mike Kinkade is now the head baseball coach at Pullman High School (In WSU's hometown of Pullman, WA)
