EMINEM 4: Who are you? Which state & city do you live in?
On the subject of Softballs, this is a generalazition:
40 & 44 cor balls with a 325, 350 or 375 comp, these balls are socks or after a few innings get soft.

Balls to stay away from..... Battin, Starr, Gray Dot, Gold Dot, & many more.

Trump, Decker, Steele, & a few more do make good balls.

In the summer a good 47 or 50 cor 450 comp by Trump or Decker, also, a Blue Dot.

Good luck, in ones search, for the "TRUTH". Try reading some of the B.S. put out by the SGMA, Trump. Decker, Starr, Battin, etc.

The ball most used at the SSUSA World Tourney is the Trump 44/375. Everyone has their opinion about that ball. That's the ball I use in BP. I have no problem with it. I get alot of use out of these and I beleive they will hold up just fine in Phoenix.

I have never known SSUSA to use anything hotter than that and can't imagine that they will since we're swinging the Miken U2's.

Hope this helps.
