The sport once held the world record for ball speed with a 125–140 g ball
covered with goatskin that traveled at 302 km/h (188 mph), performed by
José Ramón Areitio at the Newport Rhode Island Jai Alai ...


The ball used in jai alai consists of metal strands tightly wound
together and then wrapped in goat skin.


The sport can be dangerous, as the ball travels at high velocities. It
has led to injuries that caused players to retire and fatalities have
been recorded in some cases.
