Fastpitch softball involves throwing the ball faster and straighter than slow pitch. In slowpitch, the ball is generally thrown higher and slower and more like a blooper. it can be harder to hit a line drive with slow pitch rather than fastpitch because you are it at an up ward angle. In fastpitch you are to swing straight.
Yes...one name for this pitch is a Chinese change up.
Softball has always been popular. But it is improving up a little. Especially Robinson and Kennedy. They are the most popular with slow and fastpitch. You now can also get a collage degree!
The hitter gets an RBI ( run batted in) but the runner gets the credit
It depends. FASTPITCH: girls 10u or younger use a 11" diameter ball. Girls 12u and up use a 12" diameter ball. SLOWPITCH: 12" diameter ball
It Depends on if your skill is up to par. If you would like to play "travel" softball or baseball, it will cost more money than just rec softball or baseball. The amount of money can also vary on which team you play on. "Travel" teams don't usually start off at the earliest age in the game.
To be a decent softball pitcher it could take 3-4 years to pitch a softball. Fastpitch that is. The ball is bigger and weighs more than a baseball. The wind up is tricky. Most pitchers that I know have to practice their pitching around 3 to 4 days a week.
16u and up
A slapper is a batter that moves up on the ball when she is hitting to "slap" it into a hole in the infield then beat the throw to first base. A slapper is generally very fast and bats left-handed.
