As most people know, real softballs get torn up very quickly in pitching machines. The pressure that wheels exert on balls causes the glue to unbind from the ball's inner core, causing them to get soft and mushy and eventually have their covers ripped off of them.
That's why we always recommend using dimpled pitching machine softballs, which are virtually indestructible. These Baden dimpled pitching machine softballs have seams painted on them so that hitters can visualize the rotation of the ball as it approaches the plate. That's especially helpful if you are using a pitching machine that pitches curves and drops!
With a 12 inch diameter and 6 ounces in weight, Baden Seamed Dimpled Pitching Machine Softballs are the same size and weight as real softballs so hitters get a realistic experience. The painted seams are inset so that the color does not wear off quickly. Available in optic yellow with red seams only, you can use these balls with any softball pitching machine.
