Generally softball is a faster paced game than Baseball. The rules of softball vary depending on which association your playing under. Some leagues start every at bat with the count at 1 and 1, this drasticaly speeds up the game. The ASA only allows you three strikes, meaning that if you have two strikes, and you foul a ball, you are out. This is done to help speed the game along. Also most softball leagues only play 7 innings as opposed to the 9 played in baseball. Some rules in Major League Baseball are there to help speed the game along as well, for instance the pitcher technically only has 20 seconds to throw a pitch once the catcher throws it back to him, however there are no limits to timeouts in baseball, so the batter can call a timeout any time he chooses (provided the umpire grants his request), and then the catcher can call a timeout to have a meeting on the mound with a pitcher...
Softball fields are actually much smaller than baseball fields. This makes softball a faster paced game. It also makes it so that you have to have fast reflexes to play successfully in the infield.
Baseball is not called softball. The game of softball is called softball because the ball used is softer than a baseball.
Put simply, baseball pitchers throw overhand, while softballers pitch underhand.
