5.0 out of 5 starsPerfect for little league players
Reviewed in the United States on April 27, 2018
Product was exactly as described. These balls were the right size, shape, weight for my 7 year old who is playing machine pitch in little league. Side note: they were also tough enough that my Labrador did not destroy them when retrieving them.
1.0 out of 5 starsExtremely Poor-Quality Synthetic Covers and Poor Stitching.
Reviewed in the United States on March 27, 2018
Absolutely TERRIBLE quality. The balls actually start falling apart. The balls are not leather: the cover is a synthetic material that actual starts peeling off like paint. I will go back to buying used leather baseballs at a used-sporting-goods store for my needs. I wish I had read the negative reviews before I purchased these.
“Rawlings Official League” baseballs. Sounds good doesn’t it? Well maybe not so much. When they arrived I pulled one out and grandson and I started throwing it back and forth. Not hard just a little tossing 25-30 feet apart. I noticed the stitches were rough and uneven. I am not a baseball guy, but I play for grandson. If I notice imperfections I’m sure a real player would even more so. Looked close and lo-and- behold “China” in small print on ball. Need I say more? Cheap stuff, shame on Rawlings. Shame on me for not digging deeper BEFORE ordering.
I purchased these for my 8 year old son who is just Learning how to play. We went out one time and were batting for about an hour and almost half of the balls ripped already. We were playing on the grass and like I said, my son is just learning so he wasn't pounding the balls.
