My RNT Traditional copper cups are a tad to small to accept a regular baseball. The ball needs got be no bigger than 2 3/4". Have searched the web for a smaller ball and have had to got to a multi color ball to get the right size, but I would still like to find some baseballs to end the routine. Regulation baseballs are between 2.86–2.94 in or 72.64–74.68 mm in diameter.

Any thoughts or source help is appreciated.

Kind of surprised at the response.

Have you contacted Donnie for suggestions? In the past people have suggested using little League balls as they were a bit smaller. Mike Rogers baseballs are what was aso used in the past but not sure is the oad balls are still being made or by who.
Have you tried pet shops? They sell balls in all kinds of sizes that should fit. I have seen smaller tennis balls and baseballs as well as soccer balls for smaler dogs to chew on that might work. Bring a cup to a toy store and ask them if they have anything that would fit?

I bought bigger cups to fit regulation baseballs because I wanted to be able to give away my final loads. Baseballs are easy to get and a great giveaway for kids shows.

Good luck man

There are baseballs called 'Practice Balls' that are 2 3/4" dia. I had a set of Celini cups that a regular baseball was a tad tight so used those.

I use to be a able to find them in sporting stores.

The ones I had were identical looking to regular baseballs, you couldn't tell the difference....they were just slightly smaller. Perfect, I think. for what your looking Smile

The Leo Smesters are great but might be a bit too small for you. The final load fits great in my Sisti cups.

I forgot -- also kid's baseballs. Bring your cup to a sports store to check for fit.

Champro makes a perfect baseball that is 7.5” circumference. They fit perfectly in my penguin cups and my old Paul fox cups. They are practice baseballs and you can get them online for less than $25 for a pack of 4. They match my mini Leo smetsers baseballs quite well. They are stamped with Champro on them, big with soap and water it will rub off with a cloth. The last pack I got was from amazon and cost me 17.00.

Thank you all for the info! Brian you are just the BEST! I just ordered them off eBay, $25 shipped. Four Champro 7.5 balls. This is going to be great. If I can return the favor and you ever need help with trouble shooting a problem on an A-4 Skyhawk, A-7E Corsair II, F-14 Tomcat, FA-18 Hornet Lot 8, or P-3C Orion, then I am your tech. Smile

Now that Brian has shown me the answer, this is the last post for me on this subject, but for others please continue as the info may help someone down the trail.
