Oh ace are you concerned with the pressure in a baseball? I'm not... I just want to know if it will move when I throw it.

It won't. I suck at throwing

JK. Loved it

The answer is one atmosphere (1 atm), to balance out the pressure from the outside.

Extreme, if there is a balance between the outside and the inside then there is no pressure.
