Can you use a fastpitch softball bat in slowpitch softball?

I don't know what the "legal" umpire answer would be, but I do know that fastpitch bats are made lighter so they can be swung quicker. It seems like you would want to use a slowpitch bat in slowpitch for the extra power you would get from the extra weight of the bat. There is no rule against it as long as the bat is an approved bat in the league you are playing in, i.e. ASA, USSSA, ISA, NSA.

Is it legal to pitch underhanded in professional baseball?

There is nothing I have found in the MLB rules that would prohibit a pitcher from a pitching motion similar to that of a softball pitcher.

I have included a link, named 'MLB Rule 8', to the MLB rules concerning the pitcher on this page.

A crow hop in fast pitch softball is when the pitcher basically hops off the mound while shes pitching. She literally jumps, bringing both feet off of the ground. Which is ILLEGAL in softball. in order for her footing to be legal during a pitch, if she is right handed, her right toe should drag the ground. the left foot can come off the ground as much as it can, but not the right one. hope this helps

If a pitch is hit off the ground into fair territory and the home plate umpire doesn't see it does the base umpire have to to call it foul or does the home plate umpire have to seek help on the call?

What help would be needed? In fastpitch softball it is legal to hit a pitch that touchs the ground 1st. In slo-pitch, then the ruling should be a foul ball. ---- It is also completely legal in MLB and little league baseball as well. In USSSA softball, if a pitched ball strikes the ground before crossing home plate not only can the batter legally hit the ball, but any runners on base may immediately leave their base and run toward the next base. If the batter does not swing and hit the ball, it is called a ball and the runners must return to their bases.

Does the pitcher need to touch the mound while pitching?

Rule 8.01 Legal Pitching Delivery goes into detail about the only two legal pitching positions (the set position and the wind-up) but the short answer is yes, not only must the pitcher be touching the mound, his foot must be touching the pitcher's plate (or rubber) until the ball is delivered to the batter.
