Which softball is right for me?

Soft Practice Softballs:

  • Ball Covers: Synthetic-leather provides the most realistic feel, nylon is friendlier and water-resistant, rubber provides the most lively action and superior durability, and leather provides the best grip.
  • Core: 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.
    "Soft" Softballs: Plastic and foam construction is softer and less intimidating than official balls. Use during indoor practice at any skill level.

Full-Hardness/Game Softballs:

  • Ball Covers: Leather offers the best grip, durability, and shape-retention. Synthetic-leather absorbs less water and is more stain-resistant.
  • Core: Polyurethane is more lively, while cork has the best performance.
  • COR (Coefficient of Restitution): Refers to the percentage of energy a ball retains. The higher the COR rating the livelier action and bounce (ranges from .40-.52).
  • COMP (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 the father it will travel.
