They use softballs to pitch, throw, and hit with. but they are not soft

personally from a catcher as myself, softballs he are called softballs because of the size, color, and how hard it is, of course for womens softballl the ball is usually yellow with red stitching. the softball is clearly ten times larger than a regular baseball. at some times such as high school softball the ball has a soft leather outer skin but for the professionals its called the rules that it must have a hard texture. -Emmalie Finch, 22.

If you are training, I recommend you use a soft softball, to reduce the injury a leather softball could cause before a match. Usually, the hard softballs are white, while the soft ones are brown. But in a match, you can use whatever you prefer.
Yes! Some people think they aren't because they are called SOFTballs, but they definitely are!
Where the softest skin on your body is really depends on the person. Some people have really soft faces. Some have really soft arms & legs. Some have really soft genetial parts.

One is thrown slow and the other is thrown fast.
