Default Baseballer Shift Knob

This was simple and some will say stupid, but it was a quick mod that I really enjoy. I was at a baseball game and got a homerun ball. Bored of my current shift knob that is falling apart I got the idea to turn that ball which I am used to throwing into a shift knob so I can throw my car into gear while I drive.

Super Easy again... just take a drill bit and drill a hole into the ball. Pull off the old shift knob and put the ball in its place. It's a super tight fit so there is no wiggle and been driving it for a few days and finally used to it.

Darn photobucket! You can host your pics on imgur.com for free.
That's actually a pretty neat idea. Cool story behind it as well.
Who's HR was it?
You do realize you just created an awesome "pick up line" with that mod

Thanks Super! I updated the pics :-)

The homerun was by Austin Hayes of the Bowie Bay Socks (AA Affiliate for the Orioles)
