Softball was invented in 1887 but everybody played it. Not until later did mostly women play baseball and men can play softball too.
A select softball team is one that you have to try out for. Usually these teams are also called travel teams and dues are paid to be on their roster. Tournament softball is where organized teams go to play other organized teams. Recreational softball is where you sign up in a league and players are distributed to teams that will then play against each other. No try outs for recreational softball they take anyone and everyone and is usually for beginners. Select softball is much more competitive.
The inside of a softball is made of cork. Even though it is called a softball, it is not soft at all. Take it from me :)
After the softball has crossed over that home plate.
slow pitch softball requires 10 players, 6 infield and 4 outfield.
You can only take one step during a softball pitch. Most pitchers take a "leap" instead of a step to maximize the velocity of the ball. Pitchers aim for a 5 foot leap when they are pitching.
because some people are staring to believe that since USA has won so many times, they think there is no compition and that it is just a waste of money.
4 balls and take your base you've been walked.

Most softball players wear long socks, cleats, shorts, and a t shirt. They bring a bat and a softball if one is not provided to them.
