Men's -- 12
even though it is an athletic game the reason that softball if not a major league sport is due to the size of the ball. that is sadly the only reason why. people dont find it as interesting if the ball is easily hit, womens softball is a different story tho. because in mens league your underhand pitch is slow but for women the pitch is fast. but once again the problem is the ball size and that so many people undermine womens sports.
12 inch circumference
In softball, the ball is bigger. Baseball pitchers pitch the ball overhand while softball pitchers pitch underhand. Baseball is more of a boys sport and softball is generally more for girls.
Depends.. 10U 11 in ball and 35 ft. anyone older it is 12 in ball and 40 ft.
there are many types of ways to play softball. there is slow pitch and fast pitch. tee ball and coach pitch but fast pitch is where they go in a hole wind up and pitch the ball to the hitter.
The ball goes slower and there is more offense in the game.
a fast ball
uh...pitch the ball
If it hits the ground then hits the batter then yes. If it just hits the ground then no.
a pitcher throws a softball under hand in a circular motion
A slow pitch softball places emphasis on how the ball is hit and not just on making contact. Driving the ball is highly essential to hitters and this will come from the speed of the bat.
basically when throwing the ball release the ball with the index finger and middle finger easy
The ball should never hit in the batter's box in any softball game. The coach may want to remove that pitcher if he or she continues to pitch like that.
cuz that's the rule
a form of softball, also called "super slow pitch"
Many college and professional softball players can throw a fastball 60-70 mph.
Yes there many cties that have teams and leauges that have fast -ball in softball, for men
When softball was first invented people called it lemon ball, diamond ball, super slow pitch, cabbage ball, indoor baseball, mush ball, playground ball, kitten ball and because it was also played by women ladies' baseball. The name softball was given to the game in 1926.
they say what if the pitch thrown is a strike or a ball and determine if the play is safe or out.
the ball has to leave your hand before your foot leaves the base.
