Well, I am a softball player, so I know this question. The reason that a softball got the name softball is because, you may not know it, but inside of a softballs hard outer layer, is is soft and squishy. You should try it sometime. Cut the lace from the softball, it could take a couple minutes, and then lacerate is open and feel. I bet you will be surprised!!!!! Thanks for the question! -Shannon
