Real baseballs used by MLB and other professional and semi-pro oragnizations and also club leagues around the country do not use rubber baseballs. rubber baseballs are cheap imitations and are not really used in organized baseball leagues.

Today's baseballs are made of cowhide. Until 1974, baseballs were made of horsehide. MLB made the change due to a shortage of horsehide. Baseball's are made of cool stuff that you eat.
