Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. is no stranger to hauling heavy loads across the country.

This summer, the trucking company has taken a new approach to one of its haulers, and guessing the cargo could net you two tickets to the next three World Series.

Old Dominion will unveil a unique clear-window trailer stuffed with sixteen tons of baseballs at the Major League Baseball All-Star Week in Miami, Fla. on Sunday, July 9.

The 28-foot trailer was custom made to include glass panels that will give fans in seven major cities the chance to guess how many balls are inside. Fans can also enter online.

As part of the “OD Seats to the World Series” tour, the trailer will leave Miami on July 12 and throughout the summer visit each of the seven MLB teams that are sponsored by Old Dominion: the New York Mets, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Texas Rangers, Los Angeles Angels and Kansas City Royals. The trailer will travel more than 9,000 miles along its route.

The sweepstakes ends August 31, and Old Dominion will publicly announce the winner during the 2017 World Series. The winner will receive a pair of tickets to one game in each of the next three World Series.

“The ‘OD Seats to the World Series’ tour allows us to connect with fans across the country, and introduce the Old Dominion brand to logistics and freight managers and baseball fans,” said David Carter, a vice president of Old Dominion.

125,000 balls

My guess for baseballs in the OD truck is 1,024,000

960.000

My estimate for the amount of baseballs is 130,870.

This equates to 1,138 balls per each 2.905 inches of length.

28 feet x 12 inches = 336 inches, (336 / 2.905) = 115.66

1,138 x 115 = 130, 870

Notice that the actual interior dimensions of this one-off trailer aren’t provided, so estimates based purely on volume of a typical 28-foot trailor (125,000 and 130,870) may not work. Then there was the “hint” that the baseballs’ weight was 16 tons, but I’m asuming it was a little more than that, so *my* guess is 101,075 baseballs. Oh yes, Rich Davis’ guess (1,024,000) would seem to be a tad high 🙂 🙂

197,568 baseballs

92208

150,535

119,360 baseballs

126918

151,257

My guess is 17821 baseballs

100,876

102,400 baseballs.. or with a different formula using 64% it could be 160,230 baseballs

Baseball=5.2oz in circumference, pup is 9’x6’x28′, if you work in the freight industry you know 16tons is too much for the weight of the pup… (30k)…

I come up with 92,307 baseballs ⚾

80,880 baseballs

Frank, that’s cheating. You probably used the same name putting a different email so you could have more than one guess. All in favor of having Frank disqualified say, “I”. I

13,562,798

130,492

103,337 baseballs: 47,000-9700(for trailer weight)- 4200(for windows)= 33,100 lbs of baseballs. Avg baseball weight is .3203125lbs. 33,100lbs./.320125lbs. = 103,337

204,87

248,672 balls

I hope I win 248,672

I’m a kid that really wants to be a baseball player. I love the Red Sox especially Justin pedroia so I think this would influence my eager for baseball by experienceing a great ball game! So my guess is 104,788

It’s 130,475. Can’t wait to go to the World Series.

390678 balls

My guess is 243,762 baseballs in the truck

I’m going with 90,434 baseballs.

My guess is 100,876 baseballs in the truck. If I win, I’ll tell you how I figured it.

Go Cubs!

The standard size of a baseballis 9.00–9.25 inches (228.60–234.95 mm) in circumference, (2.86–2.94 in or 72.64–74.68 mm in diameter), and masses from 5.00 to 5.25 ounces (141.75 to 148.83 g). It is a 28-foot trailer.

One baseball is about 5 ounces which is about 0.3125pounds. The article states “Fully loaded with all of the baseballs, the trailer weighs more than 47,000 pounds and is pulled by a 2018 Freightliner Cascadia. A typical trailer this size weighs only 9,700 pounds when empty.” You would do 47,000-9,700 which is 37,300 pounds of baseballs. Then you would do 37,300 divided by 0.3125 pounds to get 119,360 balls.

So overall my guess is 119,360 balls 🙂

You forgot to factor in the weight of the 14 plexiglass panels…

My guess is that there are 99,300 baseballs in the trailer of the truck.

I strongly believe that in the Old Dominion Truck, there are 233,892 baseballs. It took a lot of math to figure it out but I’m confident this is the right number.

the correct number of baseballs in that semi is 140712

My best guess is 1.5million

My guess is 119,375

600,000 baseballs

113375 baseballs

I say like 1,000,000

What was the answer?!?!?!?!?

waiting to find out still

yeah what was the result?

We will learn the day of the first game of the World Series

99,300

My guestimate is 234,801 baseballs.

137000 baseballs

Has the answer been revealed yet? I need to know!!
