I hadn't heard that. The common practive I've seen is for them to stamp the ball with their team name and batting practice. That is pretty common but I haven't seen the green lettering. I'll have to watch for that. I've caught ball from probably 4 different teams this year and it was 2 with no special marking and 2 with BP stamps on them.
