You've heard of the curveball and the fastball, but how about the art ball?

The Frederick, Maryland, Arts Council is trying a new pitch to raise money.

The group is tossing 1,000 baseballs to artists and celebrities to decorate or sign.

The art balls will be displayed this summer throughout Frederick County.

The best of the bunch will be put up for auction August 29th at Harry Grove Stadium, home of the minor-league Frederick Keys.
