Baseballs are Softballs are the workhorses of the game. The sport we love is the only one where the defense has the ball. Baseballs and softballs are simple, and yet they are such an integral part of the game. Most baseballs are made from genuine leather, softballs more commonly use a synthetic cover to keep costs down; genuine leather softballs are available but rarely used. Balls can be filled with cork, wool winding, rubber pill, or a combination of the three.
Sports can lead to many interesting creations. When one company develops a new tool, other companies try to keep up the competition and develop their own version of these tools. One of the most important tools in the sport of baseball is the actual baseballs. Many companies are now producing their own version of baseballs, but not all are made the same.

Among the custom balls Rawlings has produced over the years include the “RLLB,” which is tournament grade for little league baseball; USSSA Tournament sanctioned balls and the “RSLL1” Senior Little League ball. Another quality ball that Rawlings manufactures is the R1NCAA. This is the official ball of the NCAA championship. This ball was made with patented super stitch technology and full grain leather, which increases its lifetime and durability.
Wilson is another company that constructs different balls for different leagues. The Wilson A1075BPL1 is a ball that has incredible durability with raised seams that are 20 percent higher than flat seam baseballs.
