essentially the games and rules are the same with a few differences. some softball is played with ten fielders the 10th usually being called a short center and playing between where the center fielder stands and where the 2nd base is placed.
there are obvious pitching rules (softball is underhand pitch and Baseball has no rule requiring a pitch to be underhanded or overhanded)
another difference is that baseball players at all levels from local 9 yr old leagues to the MLB are required to wear a hat and to wear it bill forward while in the field and softball players do not have to do this (in some organized softball only the pitcher is allowed to not wear a hat or visor but most of the time no one has to).
history and difference of baseball and softball?-their equipment,-playing area,-terminologies,-skills in softball,-rules of the game softball and baseball?
I'm a girl speaking, and the difference of softball and baseball is that they both suck my THICK FAT DICK/SOFT DIRTYPUSSY
There are none.
There are several key differences between softball and baseball regulations. The first difference is that there are different pitching rules. In baseball the ball is pitched overhand and in softball the ball is pitched underhand. There is also different sizes for balls, softballs are bigger than baseballs. There is also different rules in leading. For softball you can only leave the base once the ball leaves the pitchers hand, in baseball you are allowed to leave the base prior to the pitcher releasing the ball. Another difference is that in baseball bases are 90 feet apart, and in softball they are 60 feet apart.
softball has a bigger ball, the oitcher pitches different, and the bases are closer.
pretty much every rule is the same with some exceptions for pitching because that is the only major difference between the two
The rules aren't that different actually. Softball and baseball are nearly the same sport, with just a few minor differences.
they are the same as in baseball
the game of baseball
There is no difference in the rules of the game in Japan and the U. S.
Baseball and Softball are essentially the same thing. Except one is played with a larger, softer ball. There are many different rules*, but it essentially is the same thing. -Brett *I believe
That you have to use a bat and glove to be able to play.
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.
10 players that are to old to play baseball get together and drink beer.
Baseball is much like softball, only with some changed and varied rules. Kickball is also like softball in that you send a ball flying and run the bases.
what is the rules and responsibillities
What are some rules of softball that have changed in the past 50 years?
George Hancock invented softball. He also wrote the first rules.
yes, there are no rules/regulations for pitching in softball. that's just baseball.
in ASA rules yes in USSSA softball rules no
For fast pitch softball, international play and NCAA is bottom of the shoulders to lower portion of the knees. And the width of the plate. NOTE: Due to size of the ball the strike zone in softball can seem wider than MLB, but it's similar. Also the rules of the batters box differ between softball and baseball.
1887 and it was 20 men who first started playing. George Hancock is considered to be the guy who started it all it was in Chicago and it wasn't called softball it was indoor baseball but it had all the rules that softball has.

There is no difference. Some rules may have changed but I am pretty sure that it is still the same. I have been playing softball for a while and it is still the same from when i played in 2012 and I still play.
