4.0 out of 5 stars not for batting
These are great balls to play catch with, specially if you're doing it with someone who's just beginning to learn to play. But these are not usable for batting practice. After a couple of hits one of the balls tore apart. So use them with kids or beginners to play catch or practice fielding drills, but forget about hitting them with a bat.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disposable Balls Maybe???
These balls lasted just over the 4 week return mark. Surprising I'm sure to most but shoulda seen this one coming I guess. If you are looking for a good soft training ball that is 4 weeks disposable then this is the ball for you. If your looking for a good training ball that will last all season then keep looking. Good ball, bad quality!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for practice, August 9, 2011

Got these about a week or so ago and have been pleased. I purchased them to teach my 7 y.o. to catch with a baseball glove. They have a good weight to them similar to a real baseball, while still being softer on the surface. My son has definitely appreciated the padding on a couple of occasions when he took his eyes off the ball or tipped it off his glove and onto his head or face!

These baseballs are the same size as regular baseballs but are a little softer. No one has gotten hit by them yet. They will still hurt but i am sure they are not as bad as a regular baseball. I will they had these when I was little, could have saved me a little pain.

My son was very leery about the hard ball. This one gets him over that psychological hurdle.

It does not bounce out of his mitt like I feared. It acts just like a regular baseball.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible odor., August 28, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: SKLZ Safety Ball (Pack of 2) - Reduced Impact Balls (Sports)
The weight and feel of these balls is great for a soft foam ball, but the overwhelming odor that these things emanate make them unusable in my opinion. Even after washing them and letting them sit a couple of months, the odor persists and a strong chemical smell remains on the hands from whatever residue is transferred. As a result it's not something I want to give my four-year-old to play with. I had hoped the smell would dissipate over time but that was not the case.

1.0 out of 5 stars These balls are terrible. The covers fell off after the first game, July 9, 2014

These balls are terrible. The covers fell off after the first game. They both ripped around the stitching immediately--and this is with my 6-year old hitting them. Absolutely ridiculous.

The balls have a good heft and response to being hit with a bat, but are padded enough to reduce any injury due to impact.
