Updated for 2014: Rawlings Official Commemorative Major League Baseballs by Team

We’ve broken down the entire list of Rawlings Official Major League Commemorative Game Baseballs by team. Every ball that’s been used on the field is attributed to the team or teams that produced the ball or participated in a special event. In scenarios where an event only honored one particular team, the ball is not counted for that team’s opponent, unless the opponent is in some way featured within the commemorative logo. Consider this a running total; we’ll update the list each season.

You can view the unofficial Master List of Rawlings Commemorative Major League Game Balls as well for a more organized year-by-year account of game balls.

Included below is a running count of each team’s official gamers, then detailed team lists, followed by league-wide game balls. Finally, we’ve added canceled or unknown baseballs. The intention here is to help collectors who are seeking baseballs just for their favorite teams and players, as well as recognize the teams with the most baseballs in their respective “trophy cases.” This also calls out organizations that are the worst at recognizing monumental achievements or anniversaries with a special game ball.

UPDATED: 4/12/2014

  1. New York Yankees (32 Official Special Event Game Balls)
  2. Atlanta Braves (23)
  3. St. Louis Cardinals (22)
  4. New York Mets (17)
  5. Boston Red Sox (15)
  6. Houston Astros, Cleveland Indians, Arizona Diamondbacks (14)
  7. San Fransisco Giants (13)
  8. Baltimore Orioles (12)
  9. Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles Dodgers (11)
  10. San Diego Padres, Pittsburgh Pirates, Texas Rangers, Miami Marlins, Minnesota Twins (10)
  11. Philadelphia Phillies, Oakland A’s (9)
  12. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Kansas City Royals, Cincinnati Reds (8)
  13. Seattle Mariners, Chicago White Sox (7)
  14. Milwaukee Brewers, Colorado Rockies, Tampa Bay Rays (6)
  15. Toronto Blue Jays, Chicago Cubs (5)
  16. Washington Nationals (3)
  17. Montreal Expos (2)

As for the numbers, It should come as no surprise that the Yankees lead the way in Official Special Event and Commemorative Balls, and by a large margin. In addition to pure success on the field — playoff balls in the mid to late ’90s and World Series baseballs — the Bronx Bombers have also celebrated their past more than any other team. Is it a glutinous display of wealth, or a deserving tribute to the winningest, most successful team in the four major sports? Regardless, we’ve got to applaud any team that provides an opportunity for a special game ball. Which is why we must give an old Bronx cheer to…

The Kansas City Royals (2012 Update: since adding the 2012 All-Star Event balls, the Royals have jumped up the list) and Chicago Cubs. A lack of success is one thing, but there are plenty of perpetual losers with a fair share of commemorative game balls. The Cubs have no excuse.

Granted, the Cubs haven’t received the post-20o4 All-Star Game Host bump, which guarantees at least four to five baseballs for the hosting team (All-Star Game, Home Run Derby, Home Run Derby Gold, All-Star Futures Game and now 24-Karat Gold HR Derby Balls). We excuse the now defunct Montreal Expos and the newest team, the Nationals, although their stats could be combined. Also excused  are recent expansion teams from the 1990s, namely, the Colorado Rockies.

There is good news for some teams with lower totals. In the coming years, the Mets will host the 2013 All-Star Game, while the Twins (2014), Marlins (possibly 2015) and Nationals have put in requests to host in the near future. And the Cubs will get some love for Wrigley Field’s 100th Anniversary.

Check below for full team breakdowns. Or keep reading my useless thoughts here, which get updated each season:

  • Note that we did not include league-wide baseballs in individual team totals, such as Opening Day balls. The reason:
  • We cannot verify that each team used a league-wide ball, and it’s also a special event that is in no way tied to a particular team.
  • Additionally, canceled baseballs are excluded from team stats, but they’re noted below as some collectors may like to add them – if they can find them.
  • Finally, and we’re undecided on this point – we did include a few cases where an official game ball was made for an event, but not used despite the fact the event took place…
  • Examples are the Home Run Derby Gold Replicas and the 2012 Marlins Opening Night balls. I was unsure what to do with those, so we erred on the side of “the more available to collect, the better.”
  • One last note – although that Marlins Park Inaugural Game ball is truly for only the Marlins, the Cardinals logo is part of the design, since they were the opponent, therefore the ball is also added to the Cardinals list.
