Standard Test Method for Compression-Displacement of Baseballs and Softballs

2016-12-27 /Active
Significance and Use:

5.1 The static compression-displacement of a baseball or softball is a mechanical property which can correlate to dynamic properties.

5.2 This test method is suitable for obtaining data in research and development, quality control, and classifying balls by the compression-displacement.

5.3 Sports associations can use compression-displacement standards in specifications for official baseballs and softballs standards in specifications for official baseballs and softballs for purposes of consistency of performance.

5.4 This same test procedure can be utilized with other compressive forces and the specified force is not necessarily the same as experienced in actual use.


1.1 This test method describes a comparative measurement method for baseballs and softballs as defined by a static compression displacement test.

1.2 This test method is based on a slow rate force-displacement measurement.

1.3 This procedure is for baseballs and softballs meeting standards established by the sports' governing bodies.

Note 1: Since the compression-displacement of baseballs and softballs can influence the performance characteristics, this test provides a simple method to compare and categorize such balls based on force levels in a standardized compression-displacement test.

1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
