They didn't show the whole process because they didn't show how they made the pill rubber casing. :|

On the other hand. 8,000 to 10,000 balls sawn per day is a massive hard labor. :O

I am surprised that many of the areas crafting these baseballs were still by humans. Many of them could easily have been done by machines, especially the last part. They would save insane amount of money by having machines do them.

#6 I never meant it that way. I am just saying that 8,000 to 10,000 a day per person is a huge number. I mean, if i imagine myself sewing only 100; i would feel like it was a huge achievement.

So let me get this right , the part of it that makes up 95% of the actual ball is called the "center" jesus they thought long and hard about that one!

#7 it's not 8 to 10 thousand per person, that is just impossible since they would have to make more than 14 per minute. The whole factory which is 350 workers produces that amount so it is 23-28 per person in one day.

#3, are you serious? The gentle touch, fine movements et cetera are very difficult to transfer to a computer. Years of training [in sewing], a league of their own they said.
