Wavelength is inversely proportional to mass. This means that, the higher the mass, the shorter the wavelength. For larger objects, the wavelength becomes so small (the rule is generally any wavelength less than 10^-15 m) that it is unnoticeable. We just have to assume that it have wavelike properties even if they aren’t visible.
Since wavelength and mass is inversely related, calculating the wavelength for large-mass objects (such as baseball in one of our hw problems) result in extremely small wavelength, like 10^-34 m. Since these are basically close to 0, we cannot see these waves.
