Baden Sports, Inc., an independent, family-owned company, entered the athletic ball market in 1979 to address the need for higher quality products. Unique from its competitors for which athletic balls are only a secondary business, Baden focuses 100% of its attention on designing and producing the finest and broadest range of athletic balls in the industry. No other company comes close to matching Baden's product scope or ball production expertise.
Baden's entry level ball is perfect for rec leagues looking for a custom-printed ball. It is reasonably priced. They were very helpful and flexible during the design phase. Lead time for custom balls is at least four months. Some balls arrive DOA but that's what you should expect for inexpensive balls from China. Some sales staff are unresponsive and not very proactive if a problem arises. Others are very good. Depends on who you get as a sales rep. I'm on my third sales rep already due to turnover and reorganization. They should be more consistent with customer accounts.
