Recommended for outdoor game play, a rough and tumble design stands up to harsher elements with ease, be it concrete, asphalt, or any other surface outside. The TruTech™ horsehide leather shell features a non-exposed seam design that protects these critical construction components from damage, creating longevity for the ball itself. A kapok core is steam welded and stands up to heavy hitters and ricochets from over-the-fence shots. This delivers optimal ball performance pitch after pitch. An overall great ball for city leagues and schoolyard games, where grass fields aren’t always accessible.
The firmness featured on the 12” and 16” Clincher® Softball from DeBeer™ makes handling a breeze for experienced players and older students. A lack of cushion allows for tighter grip, which means more power channeled through throws—even those headed from the outfield all the way back to home plate! Hand-sewn with non-exposed seams, gripping is made easy on both 12” and 16” varieties, for improved accuracy on all throws.
DeBeer™ Clincher® Official Softball Options
DeBeer™ Clincher® Official Softballs are available in 2 sizes and 2 colors.
Which type of baseball or softball is right for me?
Soft Practice Softballs and Baseballs
Ball Covers: Synthetic-leather provides the most realistic feel, nylon is friendlier and water-resistant, and rubber provides the most lively action and superior durability.
Core: Polyurethane is the most lively and realistic, sponge rubber and cloth provide slightly less bounce and are more forgiving, fiber and kapok are the least lively for hitting drills, and foam is the lightest and most friendly.
Hardness: Level 1 is soft and suitable for ages 5-8. Level 5 is distinctively harder and appropriate for ages 9-12.
Full-Hardness/Game Softballs and Baseballs
Ball Covers: Leather offers the best grip, durability, and shape-retention. Synthetic-leather absorbs less water and is more stain-resistant.
Core: High-density cork has the best performance for baseballs, polyurethane is more lively and optimal for softballs, and cork/rubber is softer and friendlier for youth.
COR (Coefficient of Restitution): Refers to the percentage of energy a ball retains. The higher the COR rating the more lively action and bounce.
Compression: Represents the amount of pounds-per-square-inch required to compress the core 1/4". The higher the rating the harder the ball and farther it will travel.
