It isn't illegal to, but there really wouldn't be any point of it because the whole point of slapping lefty is so that you can run to the base faster. Basically, slap hitting righty would be like bunting except the impact would probablly be greater when slap hitting and would probablly be easier for most people to dmake contact rather than bunt.

Can you switch hit in fast pitch softball and can you change your hitting side more than once during your at bat?

Yes. Most right handed batters who switch to the left side usually move to the left to slap. In softball, slappers move from the back of the box towards the pitcher and attempt to soft slap (hit it softly between the pitcher and 3rd Baseman) and try to beat it out, or hard slap through the infield. On a soft slap, it is thought that by moving "running" through your hit and being closer to 1st base on the left side, faster batters will beat more hits out. On a hard slap, it is the batters hope that the infield has moved in a little too close expecting a soft slap, and it will be easier to hit it by them.
