Form is the key to success. You will see much smaller players hit farther than there larger peers because they have proper form. What is proper form you may ask. In softball I would recommend you have your legs a little more than should width apart. A little bend in the knees but not much. Hands should be relaxed on the bat. I prefer to keep my elbows up so I do not drop them when I swing. You want to swing up at the same angle the balls is coming towards you. Do not drop your elbows! You top hand should come off of the bat as you hit which creates a whip like action with the bat. This will send the ball over the fence.

Swing hard, aim for the ball and run once you hit it. Oh, don't forget to run to all the bases in a counter clockwise direction.
