(USBC specifications; tenpin)
According to the United States Bowling Congress specifications, a tenpin bowling pin should be within 0.000003950 furlongs of 0.00189 furlongs in height. The USBC further mandates that certified pins be made of sugar maple wood, unless otherwise approved by the organization.
It's about one-six-thousand-five-hundredth as long as The Diameter of Earth

(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 63,411.045 furlongs at the Equator. The first complete view of Earth's diameter was in a photograph taken from a V-2 rocket launched in 1946 by the United States Army, which reached an altitude of 520 furlongs.
It's about one-twenty-thousandth as long as The Circumfrence of Earth
In other words, 9.50 furlongs is 0.0000476879680 times the length of The Circumfrence of Earth, and the length of The Circumfrence of Earth is 20,969.650 times that amount.

The first airplane trip around the circumference of the Earth (with a few stops along the way), was completed in 1924 by the United States Army Air Service, and took 175 days.
It's about 35,000 times as tall as a Golf Tee
In other words, the height of a Golf Tee is 0.0000290 times 9.50 furlongs.
The most common golf tee size and the length preferred for iron and most wood clubs is 0.00027 furlongs tall. The tee did not come into common use until it was promoted by professional golfers Walter Hagen and Joe Kirkwood, as part of a marketing effort by the patent-holder of the well-known, "Reddy Tee."

In other words, the length of an Aspirin is 0.00000710 times 9.50 furlongs.
(for up & up aspirin, 325mg, regular strength tablets) (a.k.a. acetylsalicylic acid, a.k.a. ASA)
A single aspirin tablet measures 0.0000700 furlongs in diameter. One of the most common medicines in the world and a foundation of worldwide health systems, an estimated 40,000 metric tons of aspirin are consumed each year.
It's about one-two-hundred-thousandth as long as The Distance from Earth to the Moon
In other words, 9.50 furlongs is 0.0000049711620 times the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon, and the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon is 201,160.20 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Luna) (median of semi-major axis, or apigee, and semi-minor axes, or perigee)
The orbit of the Moon around the Earth is elliptical, with an average distance of 1,911,022 furlongs from center-to-center. About 428.376 kg of moon rock have been cataloged on the Earth, from the American Apollo and Soviet Luna Programs, and from samples that have been extracted from meteorites.
