Baseball and softballs pitchers have completely different deliveries when it comes to pitching. A baseball player throws the ball over hand, like the rest of his team.

as long as u can see the whole uniform, anything. on cold days if pitchers hit they usually are allowed to wear jackets. pitchers arent allowed to wear a whole lot on the field except there uniform and an undershirt. the undershirt is not allowed to be white as it is the same colour as the ball and can confuse the batter
