If a pitcher pitches a drop ball in soft ball what does this mean?

As a former pitcher of 11 years, my favorite pitch was a drop ball. It's entirely different from baseball not only in the fact that softball pitches underhand, but also the way you hold the ball and where your release is. I can't effictively describe how to hold the ball or where to release it without a visual for an example, but I can tell you if the pitch is corectly done, it will be slightly off-speed (slower in order to throw the batter off) and the pitch will drop right when it gets in front of the batter, causing them to swing and miss. There are several different pitching styles, so this drop ball may not match up with the way others throw it. I'm giving you an explanation for what worked for me.

What have people learned about a soft softball or a hardball softball?

A soft softball is made out of foam and never actually used in a real game of softball. If it is ever used, it is probably used in PE. or in a game that is just for fun. A hard softball is used in a real game of softball. A certified softball is a lime green sort of color and comes in a variety of sizes. The smallest size is 10 inches around, another is 11 inches around, and the biggest (and the one used for college softball and the Olympic team) is 12 inches around. Most of the time you would use the smaller sized softballs in a little league and a s the kids got older, the size of the ball gets bigger. The string that hold the ball together is red, just like a baseball. Softballs weigh about 175-178 grams. It's density is 15.5 to 16.5 per square inch.
