No. Fast-pitch is were they have the big softballs. In slow pitch, they have little ones. But they are both bigger than Baseballs! The BIG balls that you see in collage softball are started being used in 12 and under. (Which is 11 and 12 year olds) 8, 9, 10 year olds use the middle sized ball. 5, 6, 7 year old us the little balls. The liitle balls are a little bigger than baseballs.

How do you hit in slow pitch softball?

Technically you just do the same thing you do in fast pitch except you must be patient and not try to slam the ball. you keep your eye on the ball and when it gets about the right height then you hit it and run. it's easier to place the ball when you hit a slow pitch ball.

Is baseball more difficult than softball?

AnswerThe answer depends on whom you ask. First, I will assume you're referring to fast-pitch softball, because slow-pitch softball is a game anyone can play. As we used to say, softball is for everyone, but fast-pitch is for athletes. It's true that the ball is smaller and harder in baseball, but the distance from the mound to home plate is much shorter in softball. And because top pitchers can throw at better than 70mph in softball, that can be very intimidating. The field is smaller in softball, so it's harder to hit a home run in baseball, but the smaller softball field tends to make the game much quicker and requires very fast reflexes. Softball pitchers can vary their pitches with the same accuracy and variety as baseball pitchers.Baseball and softball are both excellent games requiring similar skills. It all depends on which game you like and which game your more comfortable with.I think that if you really think about it either could be harder and either could be easier because if you already play one of the sports you know how to play. but if your new than softball may be easier because of the size of the ball.It really depends on the ball size I mean you play with a softer ball in softball and it is much bigger compared to a normal size baseball so you have more of a chance of hitting it.
