Status: active
Page Count: 3
ICS Code (Outdoor and water sports equipment): 97.220.40
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... View More

scope:

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.
