Wood Bats - What Balls?
We just completed our "First Ever" wood bat day. The game changed for the better and most everyone liked the result. We do need to make a few changes, however, for our next WBD. One is to eliminate the rover position. Another is to change balls.

We've been using a Trump Stote 375/44 core ball with good results. However, with the wood bats it seemed to prematurely (3-4 innings) soften up. I can only speculate it did so because the wood is a lot harder than a composite material.

All this said, I'm not only looking for a "hotter" ball, but one that perhaps is made for use with wood bats that might hold up longer.

Anyone help?

PS: If you haven't swung your old woodie (in a game) for a while, suggest your league try it every once in a while. It's a fun game. Most everything, from baserunning to hitting to defense, changes. Tell ya one have to become a better hitter.
