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. Actually, the underhanded motion was the rule when Alexander Cartwright came up with the rules of Baseball in 1845. I have included a link, named 'MLB Rule 8', to the MLB rules concerning the pitcher on this page.
no because balls dont go up and because you are a smelly willy penis
Yes, softball is pitched underhanded.
Much like baseball pitching, softball pitching is used to throw a ball towards the batter. In baseball they throw overhand but in softball when your pitching you wind up, load, and throw underhand. There are more pitches possible in the softball pitching than baseball. All pitched possible to be thrown by a softball pitcher are screw ball, change-up, fastball, curve ball, rise ball, drop ball, and knuckle ball.
An underarm throw in softball is basically a pitch. If you watch a fast pitch softball team, you will see that the pitcher pitches underhand.
softballl is mainley for girls or older ppl and they throw faster and they have a bigger ball. Baseball is mainly for guys, they throw faster and have a smaller ball than softball
Wait for the pitcher to throw the ball home then run for the next base.
Some of the differences are: (SOFTBALL) 1. YOU THROW UNDERHAND. 2. THE BALL IS NOT AS HARD AS THE BASEBALL. 3. THE BALL IS A LITTLE BIGGER THAN THE BASEBALL. (BASEBALL) 1. YOU THROW OVERHAND. 2. THE BALL IS NOT AS SOFT AS THE SOFTBALL. 3. THE BALL IS NOT AS BIG AS THE SOFTBALL.
well if a pitcher just starts off and throws for a long time her arm will be sore, but if she is used to it, she will be okay to through for a decent amount of time and will have to ice her arm.
This is an interesting question. I don't know the exact answer, but i would guess that a softball pitcher could indeed be more accurate than a baseball pitcher at their respective distances. baseball pitcher's throwing mechanics are unatural for the human body as the arm comes up over the shoulder and is torqued, so they will tire a lot faster than a softball pitcher. a softball pitcher has a more natural motion as the arm stays down and the arm will not tire as quickly. this would lead me to think that they could indeed throw more accurate, but for a specific answer i would have to say it just depends on the individual.
If your playing any kind of Womens softball then yes. But for mens softball, it matters what league your playing in. Some lay overhand slow itch, overhand fast itch, underhand slow pitch or underhand fast pitch. Check with a teamate or make sure what kinda of softball you are playing
It depends on the angle a pitcher releases the ball, and the type of pitch being thrown. This can change from softball to baseball, as one has a mostly overhand delivery and the other an underhand delivery.
