Is there a difference between the size of a high school baseball and a college baseball?

There is no difference between a High school baseball and a MLB baseball, let alone a High School ball and college ball. The circufrence of the ball is 9 inches and the weight is 5 ounces. Although, there is no difference in size between the baseballs, the seams of a high school and college baseball are raised. The seams are not raised on an MLB ball because if they were Jake peavys' curveball would probably break about a foot and a half instead of 6 and a half inches.
