Comments about EASTON 12-inch Softball Training Ball:
This ball is really safe for beginners. The ball absorbs the impact so your face/body/limbs don't. Still hurts to get hit by one, but you get to walk it off with this ball. We have a Coed league that uses this ball. The ball wears out pretty quickly and will oblong when you hit it. But we do a new ball every week and it's great. The ball doesn't travel as far when you hit it, but I've seen a couple shots at 300 ft.
