Dick's Sporting Goods 12" Fastpitch Softballs - Bucket of Twelve
These softballs are terrible!
These are the worst softballs I've ever played with. After hitting with these only twice all 12 softballs are really out of round. I'm hoping that Dick's will allow me to return these for some better balls.

not good quality
thought this was a great bargain for my team's practices. after 1 practice every ball used was oblong and misshapen. poor quality that won't hold up for extended batting. i guess they were just made for throwing around.
can't use them anymore.

These softballs were horrible. They were lopsided after first contact. We used them but they were useless as each became lopsided and got worse after every bat contact. Will not be buying these for game play or even practice.

These softballs were soft, a couple were destroyed after 1 hit, out of of 12 balls I think four or five were destroyed after 1-2 hits.

Definitly NOT Dream Seams.....
I am a coach of a 12u gold girls softball team. I thought we could save a few bucks with these "official leauge" balls. I was wrong, after a couple of our girls put bat on ball, the balls were out of round and mush... I love Dicks, but these are WEAK! Don't buy these for practice balls, pay the extra money for the right ones..

Do not buy!!!!!!
Absolutely terrible. 2 completely split exposing the cork. The other 10 are so oblong they don't even fly or hit properly. I want my money back!!! Also each ball has only been hit about 5 times.

This product was a mess. The bucket cracked as I took off the lid. The balls felt hollow and lighter and after just a 2h practice with my 13 year old daughter some of the balls lost their shape and covers were showing immediate signs of wear. I returned this purchase and bought the Worth NCAA softballs for 1 dollar more and no bucket but well worth it.

Bought a bucket of softballs for my daughter. Got home and looked at them. They were not leather, but synthetic. They look cheap and other reviews say they do not last. I live 45 miles from the nearest Dicks, so I'll keep them. I hope they last a while.

Save your money, I exchanged the first bucket of balls and the second bucket was just as bad. After one use the balls are crushed and misshaped.

Use for batting practice. Good solid product.
