A lot of people look at the doubleball in my online store (riseball training aid) and wonder about the white ball that is attached. There is no reason for one ball to be white, another yellow.... I just had white ones left over when I started making these and thought it looked pretty cool. Now, in another 2020 twist of fate, the white ball will be discontinued this year. The White Kmaster ball from Worth is still used in most North American men's fastpitch tournaments/leagues. The ball was the last of it's kind, being made and marketed solely for men's fastpitch. Rawlings/Worth gave notice they will cease making that ball this year. The main organization for men's fastpitch (ISC, International Softball Congress) has stashed a 3 year supply away so they can continue to use the white ball for 3 more seasons at the annual 40 team World Championships.
