RAWLINGS CLAIMS BASEBALL HELPED EARNINGS IN LATE '94
Published January 18, 1995
Rawlings Sporting Goods said Tuesday that earnings for its fiscal first quarter, which ended November 30, jumped 142%. The company attributed the gain to its baseball-products business. Rawlings makes baseballs and other equipment for MLB. Sales on equipment rose 11% (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 1/18). Those sales figures include the highly publicized '94 World Series balls that according to company officials have been selling very well.
