Never encountered the pimple ball.
Funny, I was thinking of starting a thread about stick ball, halfball/half-rubber, and Wiffle Ball earlier.  I'm interested in hearing what most folks grew up with.  I mostly played Wiffle Ball, but I did encounter a bit of halfball after relocating to Boston.  We played it in gym class a few times.

We primarily played wiffle. We played some home run derby using the wiffle bat and a tennis ball. 
We used wiffle bats and tennis balls and played all sorts of formats from derby to 5 on 5 with pegging for outs on tennis courts in town.

It was awesome.

The pimple ball in the OP is what we used for halfball in my neighborhood. I haven't held one in decades and I'm glad to see they still exist.
