The body uses the anaerobic energy system when playing softball. A sport that does explosive skills or any burst of movement is anaerobic. Batting, Pitching, throwing, sprinting or quick charge to the ball are all anaerobic movements.
A good reason NOT to play softball is because you can often get hit by the ball in many ways, such as: When you are batting, you can get hit off of a bad pitch. When someone is batting and hits the ball to you and you get hit by it. When you are hit by the ball threw at you, and many others ways. Other than that, softball is a fun sport and I advise you to play it.
