The answer depends on whom you ask. First, I will assume you're referring to fast-pitch softball, because slow-pitch softball is a game anyone can play. As we used to say, softball is for everyone, but fast-pitch is for athletes. It's true that the ball is smaller and harder in Baseball, but the distance from the mound to home plate is much shorter in softball. And because top pitchers can throw at better than 70mph in softball, that can be very intimidating. The field is smaller in softball, so it's harder to hit a home run in baseball, but the smaller softball field tends to make the game much quicker and requires very fast reflexes. Softball pitchers can vary their pitches with the same accuracy and variety as baseball pitchers.

Baseball and softball are both excellent games requiring similar skills. It all depends on which game you like and which game your more comfortable with.

I think that if you really think about it either could be harder and either could be easier because if you already play one of the sports you know how to play. but if your new than softball may be easier because of the size of the ball.

It really depends on the ball size I mean you play with a softer ball in softball and it is much bigger compared to a normal size baseball so you have more of a chance of hitting it.
