The Wiffle ball - that big, white plastic ball with the holes in the top - ,was invented in 1952, by a former semi-pro ballplayer who wanted his son to be able to play backyard ball without breaking so many windows. 53 years later, Wiffle ball is seeing a surge in popularity nationwide... but here in Central Pennsylvania, it never went out of fashion.
