ASTM F1888 - 09(2016) - Standard Test Method for Compression-Displacement of Baseballs and Softballs

ASTM F1888 - 09(2016)

Standard Test Method for Compression-Displacement of Baseballs and Softballs

Status : Current   Published : August 2016



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.
