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).
a softball is made out of yarn.cork,coloring,
Yes, the core of a softball does bounce. It is made out of cork. This is what makes the softball bounce.
the core of a softball is surrounded by compressed air and nobody really knows how its made. (its made in a factory)
The inside of a softball is made of cork. Even though it is called a softball, it is not soft at all. Take it from me :)
because softball is awesome and girls deserve to play too!
Generally made from leather.
None. USC does not have a softball program.
Softball bats are normally made out of metal. Louisville slugger is the main company that makes softball bats. While they also make wood, metal is used in softball.
the first soft ball made was made in 1932.
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.
Softball gloves are made the same way baseball gloves are. Companies like Akadema make both softball and baseball gloves. See video below on how gloves are made. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcGiBodC-Mo
a softbal is not easy to throw- you probably are not throwing a real softball.
Softball gloves are most commonly made out of cowhide. However, any kind of durable leather will usually do. Other forms of leather used to make softball gloves include kangaroo, buffalo, and pigskin.
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.
It depends on the glove. Most are made of steer though.
Foam and other stuff
A softball is made of cork, yarn, leather (pretty much the same as a baseball) and is held together by compressed air.
They're lightwieght and made of sluminum.
