Best Answer

The softball is not softer than a Baseball despite the name. The name is a misnomer so you can just ignore it. When you get hit by a softball it hurts just as much as a baseball does.

If the two are coming at the same speed I'd rather get hit by a baseball.

That big green thing is bigger and heavier.
