5 ounces is about as heavy as a Baseball.
In other words, the weight of a Baseball is 1.025 times that amount.
(MLB rules)
Per Major League Baseball rules, a baseball must weigh between 5 ounces and 5.250 ounces. A major league pitcher can throw a baseball at up to 150 kph (91 mph) (with a fastball pitch), with record-setting pitches as fast as 171 kph (106 mph).
