They are practically the same. I've played both, the only difference is the pitching, the size of the ball, the size of the bats, and if you are playing for leagues or school then boys play Baseball and girls play softball.

What is a Slowpitch Softball Bat?

You may be wondering what the difference is among a slowpitch softball bat, a fastpitch softball bat and a regular baseball bat. The difference is in the technology of designing the bat. The length, weight and barrel diameter, among other features, are the main differences. Manufacturers have determined the size and weight that are optimal for hitting a slowpitch softball versus fastpitch, and have designed them accordingly.softballpickles .com

What is harder - baseball or softball?

I will state the facts. I will be representing the fact that baseball is in fact harder than softball, in theory and fact. So if you're one of the softball feminists above, stop reading! It may help you to know when to stop some day;Through scientific facts and shows via trustworthy and untrustworthy sites (like this one), throughout them all they all state baseball is in fact harder. This doesn't make it cooler, this doesn't make it "better" or "only for men" or anything (sorry had to put that in to keep feminists off my back), but just provides the information that its harder to hit a baseball. Many shows have been made off this controversy and all have resulted in baseball being harder. I've done some research and noticed that youtube is in fact NOT a good source for any kind of information, because it has a video 10 minutes long that's part of a 30 minute Discovery Channel show, that results in softball being harder (because it was ONLY 10 minutes of the show, not the full 30 minutes... The end of the real show resulted in a baseball being harder to hit). The best way to tell if a source is real or not is by seeing if it gets both points of view. i.e. If they test a baseball player trying to hit a softball, they have to test a softball player trying to hit a baseball, which few people notice and/or do. The main reason woman do softball is because its easier (that doesn't mean softball is woman only, or baseball being man only, that's just plain sexist). Through the history, the above statement has been proven (do your research!). The average reaction time required to hit a baseball is .2 seconds for a 90 mph fastball effectively 60ft from the home plate(source: (though 'untrustworthy,' look at his source, which is trustworthy), whereas to hit a softball at 60mph (40ft away from the plate, which equalizes through proportional reasoning) is .45454545454.... (etc) seconds to hit. Major difference, even if it is so little. I've covered a lot of the minor points, and at least one major point, so please add to my reasoning versus the feminists. Thanks for reading!
