Re-engineered baseballs are bringing excitement back to college baseball

(WITI) -- College baseball is the first step for many future Major League prospects. The NCAA has produced multiple MLB stars, and continues to foster college athletes to their full potential.

Recently, in an effort to make the game more exciting and to more closely match Minor League baseball, the NCAA has introduced new, re-engineered baseballs. The seams on the new balls are just millimeters smaller than the old balls. Coaches and players say that the change has increased numbers behind the plate and gives fielders a better grip.

It all adds up to a more exciting game for players, and ultimately fans. The change affects Division I schools, and many coaches are embracing it.
