It’s been snowing just about everywhere lately. Even the southern states have seen more than a few inches of snow. If the cold temperatures haven’t made playing wiffleball difficult, the snow sure has, since a wiffleball is the same color as the snow.
However, if you’ve been following this site for a while, you know we’re big fans of the Easton Neon training baseballs, especially during the winter months. They’re the same as the white wiffleballs that we normally use, just in a different color. See how much better the neon ball stands out in the snow?
Remember Charlie Finley, the guy that designed orange baseballs for night games? Well, this is the same idea, but better.
A pick-up wiffleball game in the winter is a lot of fun. It’s like playing on a different field.
Or, if you don’t want to play a full game, just have a home run derby instead. I can still remember how much fun a New Year’s Eve (day) home run derby was from 15 years ago. I don’t remember who won (probably me), but it was great to swing a bat with a batter’s box filled with snow. It would have been even more fun if we had these neon balls then.
So if it’s been a few months since you swung a bat, winter wiffleball with the Easton neon ball is highly recommended.
