Major League Lacrosse has seemingly gone away from using the grippy, neon orange balls that they have used in the past. This caused quite a stir on Twitter, especially from the Chesapeake Bayhawk's head coach Dave Cottle. At first the rumor was that grippy balls picked up too much dirt, making them hard to see on TV. When the discussion turned to the color of the balls being the issue, the best tweet came in the form of Trevor Tierney appealing to Connor Martin.

I found this older lacrosse ball a while back, and it was a truly great find. I was running a camp, and doing a ball hunt, and I thought I'd found just another lost nugget at first. Then I pulled it out from under the bleachers, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was totally weird!
