Which ball to use

Here's my 2 cents on the ball bebate. This is just my opinion so take it for that. Im an avid ballplayer in minneapolis and my team is probly a middle of the road C team. But theres isnt much upper ball avail in our area, so we play D. The ball we use for leagues and tournys is the Dudley Thunder sy. We play on 300-310 foot fields, in my experience this ball is plenty for those size fields, our homerun limits of 3 per game are always hit and some hro's are hit as well. The power hitters can hit that ball 350+ feet and the base hitters can sometimes hit it out as well. So my question is why do the best players in the country need a more juiced ball than our D leagues use which is plenty enough ball for us to easily hit homeruns? Use a ball thats equal to the field size, and in my opinion if D leaguers can easily hit their homerun limit on 300 foot fields using a thunder sy then that should be plenty of enough ball for the likes of Wegman Big Harv Kp Ac Yates Dodds Clark and the rest of the great conference players. Now i can understand when on bigger fields and baseball fields maybe more ball is needed but on 300-320 fields i think the standard league ball Thunder sy is plenty. Any thoughts?
