Leather or Synthetic-Leather Cover
Quality Handling for Tough Use
Synthetic leather and leather covers provide superior grip for more powerful and accurate throws. Synthetic leather plays true but is a less expensive option compared to leather. One-piece polyurethane center is durable and will not warp over time. Bright yellow cover and red seams increase visibility while the ball is in the air or on the ground.
Full hardness and 12” size are certified for ASA play. Sold in a dozen.
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.
