Shop By Type

Poly balls are primarily used for contact drills.

Primary use for dimpled baseball and softballs is in pitching machines.

Seamed balls can be used for game, practice and machine use.

What are the keys to consider when shopping for baseballs & softballs?

Practice vs Game Balls:

  • Practice balls are typically not approved for game use, because they have lowered seams or synthetic coverings. This is to maximize the life-span when used in pitching machines or harsh environments.

Synthetic vs Leather:

  • Synthetic / PVC / Dimpled balls have their place and can be an effective practice tool. Just ensure you purchase from a reputable manufacturer, as they are not all created equal and some have been known to damage aluminum bats.


  • It's usually a good idea to purchase balls from the same company you purchase your pitching machine from, or ask for their recommendation. If it is a major ball manufacturer check with them on the machines they have tested their balls in. It's important the machines have been properly calibrated for the weight and proportion to work with certain balls.

A ball that works well in one machine may respond differently in another machine - or 2 baseballs from different manufacturers may behave oppositely in the same machine. This can become dangerous for the batter if not prepared for a pitch high & tight.

It depends on the machine, but typically it’s recommended to look for a ball designed for machine use, which will have reinforced & lowered seams. Standard leather seamed balls will break at the seams much quicker compared to higher quality machine balls.
