I used a Lensbaby because it was the one that allowed me to get closest to the ball. But it also gave me the shallow DOF. However, I really appreciate Chrystyne's comment because it never occurred to me to use a tripod. That might have allowed me to use a zoom lens instead to get a greater DOF.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Some great details in the stitching of the baseball and textures around it. Tis a shame that only a small portion in the forefront of the ball is in such sharp focus because more details of the full stitching and the textures of the ball could be accomplished. Since it is a still life you could set the camera on a tripod, set the aperture to a very high number to increase Depth of Field, and use a slower shutter speed to get the same lighting. That could get more sharper details all around rather than just the narrow spot here in this composition.
