Pelota Ball Paleta Cuero
Ball used for Pelota, most notably the Paleta Cuero type, played with slightly thick paddles and a small ball and normally played on a Trinquete or a 36 Meter Fronton; the weight of the ball suggests this balls was used for the 36 meter fronton as it is slightly heavier than regulation; ball is white leather but has been worn down and has been slightly discolored; two lines of blue lettering have been worn down to become completely illegible and they look like two streaky lines; stitching is much like that of a baseball; found in CS1.Row3.SEC2.SHF4 by Jeff Washburn on 6/24/2009
