You have to position the balls not to be hit on the seam or the ball will split in half.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Badger67 Balls split in half quickly
I bought 12 plastic softballs for my nine-year old daughter to do some batting practice with. Her second swing broke a ball right in half. After about six practice rounds of 12 cuts, we have 6 balls left. Now the balls weren't that expensive, but I certainly expected it to last more than a few swings. Look for higher quality practice balls if you don't want to return to the store a few days later.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Wadoo Too weak
I bought the plastic balls for my girls 7-8 year old softball team to practice swinging safely in a small area. These girls are 7 and 8 years old. After 45 minutes five of the balls split in half. Very weak. I used similar smaller balls for the boys and I was able to use them for hours on end before they began to split.

Easy to pitch, great for batting practice, and you don't have to keep chasing them all over the field if you're old like me.

We used these balls for soft toss and broke 4 of the eight on the first hitter. After a week of practice, I have none left.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Softball dad Breaks too easy
Great idea but not durable. Ball will crack after limited use. Similar experience as other reviewers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by T First one broke within 15 minutes of use
We've had these for about two weeks - two of the balls have split completely in two - one after 15 minutes of use! My 8 year old daughter was hitting them with a standard hollow whiffle ball bad. Very dissapointed they were not more sturdy.

I would never buy these balls again. They broke in half during first use.
