What is the difference between a football and a baseball?

The differences are many! Where to start?? A football is oblong, although there is probably a fancier term for its shape. It is sewn from several strips of leather. Footballs are typically brown, stippled leather. Footballs are filled with air to a standard pressure. One seam is finished from the outside, like when you sew a pillow, so it has large laces to finish the seam. A baseball is round. From what I recall, it is made from a single piece of leather which has a convoluted shape when laid flat before sewing it around a solid fibrous core. Baseballs are typically white, smooth leather.
