The Softie features a genuine leather cover and stitching and is the same size as regulation leather balls. The ball grips the same as a game ball, it gives you a realistic bounce, and will not damage aluminum bats. Perfect for any defensive or offensive drill on any surface, indoor or outdoor. Baseballs, 11-Inch Softballs, and 12-Inch Softballs are all available in the Softie lineup. Accept no substitutes. Only JUGS Practice Balls come with the JUGS name on them.
