52/300
OUR TEAM PLAYS IN THE SAN ANTONIO CITY LEAGUE, WE ARE USING A 52/300 BALL. I LIKE FIELDING THE 52/300 BALL, BUT LIKE HITTING THE 44/375 BETTER. WE DID SCORE LOTS OF RUNS USING THIS 52/300 BALL, AND I PLAYED 3RD AND HAD A COUPLE OF BAD HOPS THAT BOUNCED OFF MY SHINS, NO BRUISES OR BLACK AND BLUE MARKS. THE GUYS WHO ARE BASEHITTERS ADJUSTED TO 52/300 BALL AND HIT THE BALL PRETTY GOOD, WE HAVE ONE POWER HITTER, DID NOT HIT ANY OVER THE FENCE BUT HIT SOME OVER THE OUTFIELERS HEAD.
IN SUMMARY, IF SSUSA DECIDES TO USE THIS BALL, I AM READ TO PLAY.

mad dog, probably would have got the same bad hop if using a 44/375. The 52/300 ball allowed me to continue to playing after being hit, no damage, actually may play after the bad hop, picked it up and force the runner at 3rd. I don't know the manufacturer of the 52/300, but will check with our manager.
