Default Best softball to use

We are starting a recreational coed softball league in our small town. Our question is what is the best softball to use that will hold up in 90+ degree heat and high humidity(Louisiana). We will be playing on a standard 12-13yr division Little League ball field. The league says they allow any ASA and USSSA approved bats.
Homeruns are allowed but are limited for the men. Players will range from age 15 and up and are of all different skill level.

Thanks for any advise!

200 ft? That's really short for adults.

Half swing with a composite on anything but a rag ball will carry over that.

Big thing is use leather balls, the synthetics may hold up a bit better, but they are awful to field when it's wet, or your hands are sweaty.

If they are allowing those bats than I would say a SB12 Cork Center ball

One of the leagues I played in played on a little league field but they limited it to single wall bats only with no composite handles.

It looks like there are going to be some wild games.

Yeah, it's all we have though. It's a very small community. It's a small league and most haven't played since high school. We are just looking for recommendations for a durable, high quality ball that will hold up in the August 100 degree humid heat when we start. Lol.
