What is a softball made of?
Good quality baseballs and softballs are made completely differently.
Inexpensive softballs are made of a cork and rubber mixture and a vinyl or other synthetic cover, then stitched with yarn.
The vast majority of softballs, both slowpitch and fastpitch, are made of a solid polyurethane core and a leather cover stitched with nylon thread. The cover on better softballs is glued to the core before stitching. A fastpitch softball has raised seams and a slowpitch softball has flat seams.
The core is the ball itself, not to be confused with COR, which stands for Coefficient of Restitution. Softballs are measure by two variables - COR and Compression. The higher of either number the harder the ball.
The compression is simply the pounds per square inch required to compress the ball 1/4". The COR is the speed in which the ball goes from the compressed state back to its original round state (rebound).

Most softballs are made out of a solid polyurethane core and a leather cover stitched up with a nylon thread. There is also glue attaching the core and the cover of the softba…ll. However, there are some softballs, the more inexpensive ones, that are made of a cork center and a synthetic cover.
Most softball bases today are made out of rubber. They do have a metal bottom that allows the base to stay where it is supposed to be. There are throw-down bases that are made… out of foam and can be thrown down anywhere.
The first softball game was played on Thanksgiving Day in 1887. They players played inside of a gym at Farragut Boat club, located in Chicago, IL. The believed inventor of sof…tball is George Hancock.
Although Softballs are hard, they used to be an alternative to baseball for those who wanted a softer ball. It was big, soft, and squishy. The softball was then changed to a h…arder ball but the name stuck.
Aluminum Although they are still made you rarely see an aluminum bat used. Current composite bats are made from a mixture of carbon fiber, glass, and kevlar embedded in plasti…c resin.
Here's the real deal: Leprachauns control how the ball goes because they sit in the middle (core). So be on a Leprachauns good side. They have this power by using the unicorn …dust they collected on the way down the rainbow! Duhh
No if it is a foul ball or if it hits the fence and you catch it it does not matter you still can play it if it is not foul but if it is foul and you catch it when it hits the… fence they just call it a strike. Actually - you CAN catch a ball off the fence. There is no rule against it, however it will NOT be counted as an out. The fence is part of the field just like the ground. Therefore, if it hits the fence in foul or fair territory, it is played the same as if it had hit the ground before you caught it.

go one- throw to first go two- throw to second go three- throw to third go four- throw to home up up up- a pop up is in play and they are going to catch it good cut- good swin…g good eye- good job swinging at strikes not balls r.b.i- runner batted in.. a hit caused someone to score r.b.a- runner batted around.. a hit moved players around the bases
1) You make fair contact with the ball, and either ground-out or fly-out. 2) You take your lead to early (before the ball is released from the pitchers hand) and the base… umpire catches you. 3) You strike out. 4) You foul tip the ball into the catchers glove 5) You run on a hit ball and the play is made at the bag you are attempting to advance to on a fielders choice. 6) You are running the base path and the hit ball hit you before it is fielded by the defense.
Answer a softball is made out of yarn.cork,coloring,
The process of making softballs is basically the same as making baseballs, But different material is used, and size. A thin layer of string is woven around a core center. Th…e core used to be made of cork, but recently plastic is used. With baseballs "rubberized" cork centers called a Pill", and woolen yarn is wound around the core. Two figure eight shaped covers are cut and stapled on the ball. The covers have pilot holes to guide the threat for stitching. The covers are then hand sewn together on the ball. The softball or baseball is placed in a stitching clamp to secure the ball for stitching. This process has been used since the earliest days of baseball. For more information on these baseball stitching clamps I will leave some links below. -Steven KeyMan i have NO IDEA and don't care dominic is gay 4 eva dominic and his boyfriend brad
personally from a catcher as myself, softballs he are called softballs because of the size, color, and how hard it is, of course for womens softballl the ball is usually yello…w with red stitching. the softball is clearly ten times larger than a regular baseball. at some times such as high school softball the ball has a soft leather outer skin but for the professionals its called the rules that it must have a hard texture. -Emmalie Finch, 22.
It is a lot alike with baseball except the softballs are a lot bigger It is also really fun I suggest trying it
A standard softball has cork for the very center and then there is a layer of 'string' like materials outside the cork. The very outside is covered with a thick layer of leath…er.
