There are only two kinds of baseballs that actually hit well; Diamond and Major League. Diamond baseballs are used by most college and high school teams and cost about $50 for a dozen. A cheap, but worse ball might only cost $20/dozen. Major League baseballs can be bought for about $10 each. They hit well, but not as well as the balls that the pros use. For example, when I was 15 I used a ball I caught during the Detroit Tigers batting practice and found it would hit about 50 feet farther than any other ball. Moral of the story; If you want a baseball that will hit far, use Diamond or Major League baseballs.
