J R Training Ball

80 Bardwells Ferry Road, Shelburn

I was photographing a house in Shelburn Falls today and was setting up in a shot in the billiard room.  I racked the balls and was surprised to see an extra one.

It is called the J R Training Ball, and even though I used to hang out in pool halls a lot as a kid, I have never seen one.  It is graphically beautiful.  I want one.

I looked online and found out they are for sale and are named after Jim Rempe.  Here’s what I found out about him.

    Very interesting article. Who knew? The object is very ‘striking’. 😀
