    Big ball of paint
    Monday, March 15, 2004 Posted: 9:28 AM EST (1428 GMT)

    ALEXANDRIA, Indiana (AP) -- A man who's spent years applying layers of paint to a baseball that's grown to enormous proportions is hoping to have it declared the world's largest ball of paint.

    For the past 27 years, Mike Carmichael has been painting a baseball that hangs in a shed behind his home.

    It now weighs 1,300 pounds, is more than 35 inches in diameter and has a 111-inch circumference due to more than 18,000 layers of paint.

    On Saturday, Carmichael watched as a crew took a core sample from the green ball that's needed before it can earn a spot in the Guinness Book of Records.

    In honor of Carmichael's work, Saturday was declared Ball of Paint Day in Alexandria, about 25 miles northeast of Indianapolis.

    It starting with a proclamation honoring Carmichael on the steps of City Hall, followed by a photo exhibit and ending with the core sample taken at Carmichael's home.

    "I am not going to start any more baseballs," Carmichael declared.
