NOCSAE Baseball Clarification

The NFHS has received calls about the compliancy of baseballs with the NOCSAE/SEI performance standard mark that do not match the image that is depicted in the NFHS Baseball Rules book or other NFHS publications (see below). If the baseball has the words NOCSAEĀ®/SEI printed on the ball, then the balls are compliant with NFHS playing rules (see images & red arrows below) for possible examples of approved markings on baseballs. Thanks and enjoy the start of baseball season!
