Might those 'baseball' stories have been originated by fishermen?

Common [Midwest] terms [for hail]: pea-, dime-, golfball-, and
baseball-sized hail; although, it needs be said that baseball-sized hail was
rarely reported live, but common
in "big storm" stories.  Lawyers might further say that this list includes,
but is not limited to, the above mentioned terms.
