Balls getting dumber...
The balls have been deteriorating
for a couple of years now.
Of this there is no doubt.
The latest entry in this sad saga
seems to be the disclaimer I saw in the Trump Stote balls in Utah that said,
maximum 375 x 44 on them.
Now, this means that none of balls can be more
but it seems they can be a lot less.
They could be 42 x 300 and still be qualified
correctly by that label.
I would ask Kevin to qualify but we already know
what's going on.
There's a movement to make our balls
soft to satisfy some administrative
and profit motives.
I've heard now that SSUSA will not go for further deterioration of the balls but nothing seems to stop the Juggernaut that Kevin seems to be in the middle of.
As I said before
we won't tolerate or support lesser bat/ball combos
period and we will boycott those companies
and associations that show they don't have
our best softball interests at heart.

I am curious. In Houston, we have been using the 44/375 BAM ball in our local tournaments and the guys love it. Like to know if your using it where you play?
