There are different grips for different pitches. Know the different pitches so you can work on the several grips
easy...you learn how to do all kinds of pitches or just some pitches and you do it in a fast pitch league..
softball has a bigger ball, the oitcher pitches different, and the bases are closer.
Softball pitches because girls can throw more heat and baseballs are smaller.
no the softball is much bigger and different. you use your index, middle, ring, and pinky(for support) and your thumb to pitch. softball and baseball has the nsame pitches, but different ways to do it. trust me I'm a softball player :) and a pitcher:) and a hitting slugger:)
You can walk after four pitches.
the two are pretty much the same. the only things different are that in baseball the runner can lead off earlier, and the pitches are over hand. in softball the runner has to wait until the ball is pitched before leading off, and the pitches are under hand. some of the rules are different but that's it.
Softball and baseball are different for several reasons. First off the ball size of a softball and baseball are different. A softball is bigger than a baseball. Also a softball is yellow and a baseball is white. Also the dimensions of the field are different. In softball the bases are 60 ft apart and the baseball bases are 90 ft apart. The fences vary and the pitchers mounds for different leagues in both, but in baseball both the pitching mound and the fences tend to be a further than in softball. The pitching motions of the two are also different. In baseball one pitches overhand and in softball they pitch underhand. The games have the same basics concept, but differ a great deal.
There is no set number.
Softball is probably harder. Despite the name, a softball is harder than a baseball, and heavier (therefore harder to hit very far). Because of this, the batter must run to the base quicker as the ball will be closer. Plus, in fastpitch softball, the pitches can be as fast (or faster)than baseball pitches.
A softball pitcher is the girl in the circle on the mound in the center of the field. She is the girl who pitches the ball to the batters.
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.
In softball there is a change-up, fastball, drop-ball, rise-ball, and screwball. Other variations can them stem from these basic pitches. Such as an off speed curve-ball, or the even nastier back door off speed curve ball. It is beneficial if pitches have a pitch they can throw very well if they are looking to being recruited of being a top-notch player.
Number of pitches

Softball pitches have been measured at faster than the record baseball pitch of 104 mph.
In baseball pitches are generally in the high eighties to low nineties range in mph. In softball pitches are in the upper 60s mph
A pitcher should work up to the amount of pitches that they will usually throw if they are going to pitch the entire game. That is usually somewhere around 125 pitches. Better to be over prepared than under prepared.
He calls plays and and pitches.
PIT is pitches thrown or pitch count.
The batter missed three pitches. 3 strikes=your out
First off all it would depend on what the score of the game was and how many batters were faced. There is anywhere from 150-300 in a 7 inning softball game. It would depend on the level of play, the skills of the pitchers, and the umps of the game.
Its just like baseball, 3 Strikes- Batter is out 4 Balls- Batter gets a free walk to first base
