The traditional baseball is made from a sphere of woolen thread wrapped around a cork core and covered by two strips of thick leather. Synthetic baseballs differ from leather balls by their interior and exterior composition. They are mainly used in the young league (little league) and for initiation. Models with polyurethane core are lighter on impact, which helps young players not to be afraid of the ball.
