Best Answer

Because a Baseball is smaller you could hit it farther. This is because with less surface area, there is less friction action on the ball. With less friction acting on the ball, it means less "stuff" is holding the ball back from traveling farther, the baseball can physical travel farther than a softball.

What is a hypothsis for the question what goes farther a baseball or a softball?

My hypothesis is that the baseball will indeed go farther. To explain why well because it is smaller so it will gain more speed. While a softball is big it will not gain as much speed but could be hit far as well. thank you.


Does bat speed help you hit a softball farther?

Generally, yes - or at lest to a greater extent than it does in baseball. Physically, the harder you hit the ball (mostly speed of the bat) the farther it will travel. In softball, the speed of the incoming ball really doesn't vary all that much between fast pich and slow pitch. In baseball, the speed of the incoming ball - if it's a fast ball especially - has a great bearing on how far the ball will travel. So if the bat speed is good in either sport, in softball the hit will travel farther. In baseball, with the right pitch, the hit will travel much farther.

What ball travels further the softball or the baseball?

The baseball will travel farther because it is smaller. The smaller an object is, the less resistance it has to overcome to continue traveling. This is one of the reasons why a softball field is so much smaller than a baseball field. If softball was played on a baseball field, no one would be able to hit home-runs.

Does a baseball or a softball goes further if you hit it from the same distance?

no, thethe gravity of a baseball is bigger than a softball's. so baseball has more friction than softball. hence, if you hit both of them from the same speed ,baseball will go further than softball.

Softball is a variant of baseball. All the rules are essentially the same, however, the ball is bigger in softball and therefore easier to hit and doesn't go as far when hit.


Which is harder to hit baseball or softball?

It is harder to hit a softball thrown from a perfesional softball player than it is to hit a baseball thrown from a major leager. The reason is the angle of the pitch (softball has more of an angle there for it is harder to hit) and the quickness/speed( softball mounds are closer to the plate and a softball, lets say from jenny finch, can be thrown at upwards of 68 mph; therefor it gets to the plate quiker than a 90 mph baseball pitch). IF you think what I wrote isn't true then google SPORTS SCIENCE BASEBALL VS. SOFTBALL. you will see (its a video) what I said is true,
