Dick's Sporting Goods Plastic Softballs
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.

Waste of Money
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.

Breaks too easy
Great idea but not durable. Ball will crack after limited use. Similar experience as other reviewers.

Breaking these balls
My daughter broke 2 out of 6 balls in the first few swings of her bat

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.

5 of the 6 balls broke in half
I would never buy these balls again. They broke in half during first use.

Plastic softballs split easily.
These plastic softballs split way to easily in drills and being hit off of a tee.

I have used whiffle balls for years . These balls started breaking the first day. I was very disappointed and returned the other package I bought . It was like throwing [$] out the window .
