Best Answer

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 plastic resin.

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).

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. The 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

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 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 leather.
