It just keeps it at normal humidity. We have pretty much 0% humidty here in denver.

Yeah, like I said in a previous post, the humidor doesn't doctor the ball, it brings it within MLB specifications. Prior to the humidor the balls in Denver were not within MLB specs. Hard to argue against it's use.

Has Arizona considered using a humidor? It's pretty dry out there isn't it?

I've heard they are getting the ball so wet you can tell it's harder and heavier, those are just random comments from opposing pitchers.

Average humidity in Denver during baseball months is about 70% in the morning and 35% in the afternoon.
