OK I think I got it . A Hank Aaron ball is a specially marked ball that is brought into a game at the point a hitter would be setting a new ML record or milestone.<br><br><span class=gensmall>Accepted as answer by Arlo on 04 Mar 2003 10:23 EST.</span>

DieHardCubbie has it! ;-D

In order to avoid disputes or confusion when more than one fan claims to have caught a home run ball marking a significant milestone (as has happened numerous times), the umpire will give the pitcher (invisibly) marked balls when pitching to the hitter in question. For obvious reasons, they were named Hank Aaron balls.

Congrats on putting all the clues together, DHC! You really did have to see this question - and these balls - in a different light... such as ultraviolet. :-D
