    My brother and I are the official Guiness Book record holders for this record with 10 baseballs in one hand. We set this record in 1991 and were published in the 1993 and 1994 editions of the book. The record was then closed by Guiness. While I congratulation Mr.Flaherty on his accomplishment, this evidence is not sufficient for Guiness and we had much stricter requirements.

    Congratulations! I must say however that the video evidence here is not sufficient for Guinness. As I held this record with Guinness Book and their qualifications for proof were much stricter! Anyway, great job!

    I have video of 4 different high school baseball players each with 10 balls at one time. We are going for 11 this year.

    Good job brian! I could imagine playing a baseball game and the pitcher holding 10 baseballs in his hand getting ready to throw them all at once towards the plate!! I'm a big fan of yours and looked at alot of your records. I can honestly say that haveing the guy that holds the most world records break a record of mine that I helped think of is an honor. Way to go!!
