Actually, the fastest pitch supposedly was 104 mph by Eddie Feigner of the King and His Court. I saw him pitch, and I wouldn't put money on that speed one way or the other.
As a player and pitching coach, I have faced male pitchers who threw in the low 90's, but most pitched illegally (crowhopping). There were a few guys who leaped who could bring it over 85.
As far as women pitchers, Michelle Grainger was clocked one time at 73mph, but who knows if the guns are doctored.
The fastest women pitchers I have coached and recorded on a Stalker radar gun, threw 64-66 mph.
I have heard so many stories of super speeds, but usually, when I gun them the speeds are 6-10 miles under what they think they're throwing.
The good news is that speed is way over rated. I'd take a pitcher with location and movement over a thrower any day. ( BTW- I still hear the bells from the 90+ ball I took in my helmet!)

How about the rising fastball.
An underarm throw in softball is basically a pitch. If you watch a fast pitch softball team, you will see that the pitcher pitches underhand.
The ball goes slower and there is more offense in the game.
College softball pitchers, pitch anywhere from 50mph to about 70mph. But 70mph is about the fastest.

Yes, if you are the batter.
If your playing any kind of Womens softball then yes. But for mens softball, it matters what league your playing in. Some lay overhand slow itch, overhand fast itch, underhand slow pitch or underhand fast pitch. Check with a teamate or make sure what kinda of softball you are playing
