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).

Answer a softball is made out of yarn.cork,coloring,
Answer cork,thread, and leather
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
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.
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
A softball is made of leather on top and yarn or string to hold the two pieces of leather together. Inside is compresed foam or urithane foam.
because softball is awesome and girls deserve to play too!
Foam and other stuff
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.
George Hancock is given credit for founding softball because in a gymnasium after watching the harvard-yale football game in 1887 he threw a ball at another man and yelled let…s play ball
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.
