Another favorite package is the Wiffle packaging for both ball and bat.
Hexagon to circle
This shape is then ingeniously cut along the folds of the hexagon to allow it to open and accommodate the larger "circle" of the ball, after which the cardboard returns to its original form of a hexagon to create closure. The two differing diameters of bat and ball are reconciled through the manipulation of this single hexagon. But thats not the end of it. Even more excitement! The cardboard, after returning to its hexagonal form, is now perforated on half the creases, with the intent that it be opened here in order to get the ball out. After doing so, these "freed" ribs, through the nature of their geometry, can be bend down upon themselves so as to form a nest for the ball to sit in, against the back ribs which have remained upright.
Package, broken but showing closure of ball
At this point, a single person can put the ball in the nest, toss the ball into the air, and hit it with the bat. In this brilliant packaging, the ball is reconciled with the bat, both prior to purchase and after, and from a formal standpoint, manifests that line, as bat, is but a series of many points (ball). Nothing but clarity. Now go out and play.
