Never realized how expensive baseballs can get. This was one of the cheaper ones (in price) but overall they're good enough to practice with. Kid uses them for pitching practice. They have a nice feel and weight.

We don't have a lot of grass by us so it's usually practice in schoolyards where the asphalt/concrete can scuff the ball very easily.

Also took one to a game to use as practice (throwing) and after 30 minutes, the feel of the ball turned a bit slippery. You can still throw with it but I did wonder how much longer it will last.

Again, good for practice though.

This is a great ball that holds up well under heavy use. The core stay solid and does not turn to mush before the cover wears out. The full grain leather cover and raised seams make this a very good pitching ball. The quality core holds up to relentless hitting. Nowhere in the description does it say that this is a tournament grade ball, because it is not a tournament grade ball. Slamming a great product because it was not a different product due to seller or buyer carelessness corrupts the value of reviews. I ordered the product from Amazon Warehouse Deals and was shorted a ball, and yes, the seller was careless and it stinks, but it has nothing to do with the quality of the product. Thanks.

I've coached Little League for 6 years and have 2 boys that play. I've tried about every brand of baseball and Rawlings are by far the best. We are tough on baseballs and will ruin the cheap synthetic covered balls in a matter of a week or so. Some cheap balls will become oblong after one hit and then they are junk. If you want baseballs that will stay round and last, invest in high quality balls like these. I also order these for our league as game balls.

Durable, great thread feel and movement even for developing pitchers. Threads will flatten after a good hit which can make the ball fly a little less true, but even then it'll still last months under heavy practice use.

I've always appreciated the consistency of Rawlings balls. The competition-grade, RLLB1 balls are not the finest available, but at +/-$3/each, they feel and play great. The full-grain wrap has a subtle, but grippy feel and wears pretty well. The seams are raised enough for Little league and don't flatten out after a reasonable amount of bat abuse. Send a hard tip spinning into the backstop and CONGRATULATIONS!- you've just gained another practice ball, but aside from that or getting them wet, they wear just fine. Even after hard knocks, they remain true and keep their shape. I strongly prefer these balls to Diamond or Wilson balls whose competition-grade balls are not even close to the quality or consistency Rawlings provides with their RLLB1. If you're going to use them for league play, make sure you've got the right ball for the right league! I got a dozen for just under $40 through Amazon. Can't go wrong. Play Ball!

NOTE: I had a hiccup with the seller that was promptly rectifed, with apologies, after I contacted them. Satisfied all the way around.

I've been buying these for a little over two years now. Our son, now 12, plays baseball and our daughter, 14, plays softball, but she practices with us with baseballs. These balls are of very quality for the price. Our easiest way to get practice baseballs is to go to our local minor league team's games and catch/chase down foul balls, but I'd rather be watching the game. We're on our fourth dozen and still use all 48. A few have some bad scuffs, one has a few loose seams, but those were ones I most likely hit (6'2" 270). It surprises me that more people don't buy these baseballs. They're comparable, if not exact, to the balls our local Little League uses. I used to would have also recommended the Wilson High School baseballs, but they've went up to nearly double the price of these Rawlings. Nice ping from these balls when they are hit and good seams to help our son with his pitching.

We have accumulated a bag full of these balls. They all are equal in performing well and standing up to hours of practice and play. Can't think of any negatives to say regarding this product. Recommended.

More expensive, but a professional 'hard' ball that will jump off of the bat. I see the benefit of practice baseballs that are softer and cheaper, but nothing compares to the flight of this ball when it leaves the bat.
