What experience do you need for softball?

Softball is a derivative of baseball, so it helps if you've played that sport. Slow pitch softball is far easier for a beginner than fast pitch, both from hitting and defensive perspectives. If you're a novice to softball, the easiest positions to play are on the right side of the field: first base, second base and right field. If you're an inexperienced player, avoid playing the left side of the infield where balls tend to come on the fielder faster and more often. Also avoid pitching. In softball, the pitcher is only 45 ft from home plate, balls tend to get hit up the middle often and reaction times need to be lightning quick.

How many steps forward can the pitcher take in softball?

In softball pitching the pitcher is only allowed one big step because the rule states that prior to the pitch both feet should be on the pitcher's plate and during the pitch one foot should be on the plate before ball is released. you can check the basics of pitching here:
