softballs
How does the 50/300 ball compare to the 44/375?We have been using the 44/375 baden fire ball which is a very good ball and in some tournaments they are using the 50/300 ball.I know in cooler weather the 50 cores are okay bu what about on hot summer days?

It would be helpful to the ignorant (me) to explain the differences in softballs by type (not
brand. I know generally the second number is compression and the higher the number the further it goes, but I don't know how the Cor interplays with the compression. Is there a difference between a senior .44 375 and ASA .44 375. I note some balls are marked USSSA approved but have no
other numbers. WHY? What is the difference in a composite or synthetic? Knowledgeable help would be appreciated. Thanks.

we use them for league in both cities i play in....they still get hit out regardless of bats used.....another thing is they do not change b/c of the temp outside(it is the way they were design),they basically preform the same regardless of temps,unlike the 40 or 44 balls.....

so mad dog are you saying there isnt much difference between the 44/375 and the 52/275? does the 52 stay as hard as the 44 over the length of a game.and are you saying that it doesnt matter if its hot and humid the 52 doesnt change?

Discussion: 52/300 slow pitch softballs

MD; "heat does not affect them (the 52/275 ball)? Are you talking about all 52/300-275 balls? I have a box of Trump Stote 52/275 balls and stamped in big, black lettering it says: "CAUTION! These balls are heat sensitive. Do not store in trunk of car."
(and they're right, these balls don't go anywhere in June, July, August)

There are some guys here that say they are ok.

I play in one of the leagues with mad dog. The balls are fine to me. You don't get as much feedback from the bat when you hit them but they will fly.

bc7,the 52 will not out perform a 44 in cool weather,but when the heat gets up in the 90's and higher the 52 will be on par with the 44 i think.and yes dave is right it still flys in our league.......

Guys sorry I tried to change the topic, but it wouldn't open the "start a new discussion" page for me.
Here is my question :

I was watching my Grandson play in the State High School pLayoffs at Dell Diamond yesterday when I saw a Baden Rep there set up at a table.....he had some baseball bats and bat bags and since I am Rep for Tanel we got to talking about bats.......Baden has a bat out that the Rep told me was about $300 and he said it was "hot" out of the wrapper........has anyone heard or used this Baden bat? And if so your comments on it please. He wants to trade me one for some Tanel stuff....BTW, my Grandson won and is playing at 11:30 today for the STATE CHAMPIONSHIP !!!! GO WOLVERINES !!!!

We used this ball in the Missouri state game this weekend, they go just as far, but are more bouncy/dangerous for the infielders.
