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.

Is softball better than baseball or not?

Yes, softball is better than baseball. Think about it. In major league baseball do you see many women? No. In softball do you see very many men? Yes. Not as many as women, but you still do see men. I also think softball is better because if you are pitcher, you can ruin your arm by pitching in baseball. In softball, you cannot hurt your arm unless you are pitching wrong. Some people say "softball is for girls" because it is a sport for wimps. But that is not true. softballs just leave a bigger bruse!
