Gopher ClothCore™ Softballs

Lively, lighter balls have a dense cloth interior and real stitching for an authentic feel!


Give your class a safer option during softball units and acclimate kids with the fundamentals of the game with zero ball intimidation. This ball’s cloth core is softer and more friendly than traditional wound- or solid-core balls, adding flexibility and forgiveness while still remaining strong against years of institutional play.

Great for Training

The hardness of traditional softballs is replaced by a lightweight, soft ClothCore™ center and synthetic leather cover to provide kids with a friendly feel and safer construction as they learn the fundamentals of the game. Training softballs are sting-less and non-intimidating, with an added degree of flex to provide better grip and ball control when fielding and throwing. The larger 12” size allows kids to perfect throwing form and makes for an easier-to-hit target, with ball tracking made simple thanks to the bright yellow jacket and red stitched seams.

Ideal for Indoor Play

Indoor play is made safe thanks to the gentler design of practice softballs—there’s no fear of hard objects ricocheting off of floors and walls! Synthetic leather stands up to repeated hits with metal bats, with landing and catch impacts deadened by the soft shell design. Gym floors and walls also benefit from a forgiving construction, and won’t be subject to marring and blemishes that can occur with full-hardness balls in an enclosed space.

Gopher ClothCore™ Softballs are available in yellow in a 12” size.
