The current grenade (Middle one above) is the exact shape as a Major League Baseball. They figured that most boys play baseball at one time or another and that if it were shaped like a baseball it would help in throwing and accuracy.
They also are good for fishing as well. We were on the grenade range at Fort Hood one time and I was up for the live fire. I turned to my buddy and said watch this I am going for one of the 55 gal blue drums film it for me ok. So he gets the camera ready from about 300 yards out and starts rolling. Would you believe me if I told you i dropped my first one right in one and sent it 50' in the air. I wish I still had that video.
I used to scare the **** out of my squad leader, because I threw grenades like a baseball, instead of lobbing them.
