I don't know if I'd ever use this baseball (especially since it's not recommended you do), but a black baseball is certainly a conversation starter. It's deep black and shiny...certainly a contrast from the matte white and red balls that you normally see.
I keep a baseball bat in my room. I call it my thinking back and I swing it when I need to think. So naturally, a baseball could be a nice addition to my creative process. But for an athletically challenged person like myself, an interesting object like this might be a better fit than the real, normal thing.
