Recycling Softballs

Here's a photo of me recycling softballs. These balls are frequently abandoned in a baseball field near where I live. My wife and I pick them up for our dog Lily to play with (recycle #1). I also clean up the best ones and use them at school for physics demonstrations (recycle #2) (see here). What I'm doing in the photo is skinning a softball. What's inside? A lovely plastic sphere which is light yet durable, and also useful in my physics class. I'm convinced that they would make a great Newton's cradle, so I'm "harvesting" some to try it out this summer (recycle #3).
