Can a softball pitcher throw more accurate than a baseball pitcher.?

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.
