Norman Stingley, a chemist for a rubber company that made "blow-out preventors" for
oil wells, discovered a material and process that was unsuitable for the industry but made
great, high-bouncing balls. The company passed on it, so Stingly shaped the material
into a ball and brought it to "Wham-o", the maker of Frisbee's and Hula Hoops. Six
months later, in 1965 the Super Ball was introduced.
