You're going to draw some a texture like following one and assign it to a nurbs sphere and you're happy with your baseball :)

Yes the Golf Ball texture of Edhariss works fine. I've never created something like that but I'd use a free photoshop plugin that helps creating textures for spheres. I dont remember its name but I gues it could help.
Or just use the texture you posted the link as reference then start painting more detailed one.
