== == Baseball cleats are metal, and always that way. Softball cleats can be rubber, plastic, or metal. Metal cleats are only allowed in high school and college softball though.
There is no difference. The only difference there MIGHT be is the bottom of the cleat. You can have METAL or MOLDED cleats. There are softball cleats that are metal but the majority of the time the baseball cleats TEND TO BE metal and softball cleats TEND TO BE molded. BUT, metal cleats are allowed in softball, made for softball, AND VISE VERSA. SO IT REALLY WOULDN'T MATTER WHAT CLEATS YOU BOUGHT.
No, softball cleats cannot have metal bottoms only rubber.
Depending on what type of field you play on, you can either wear cleats of turf shoes. Cleats are the most common type of softball shoe. There are both rubber cleats and metal cleats, but most leagues do not allow you to wear metal cleats.
No. It's illegal to wear metal cleats in girls softball. 16u and up can wear metal spikes and you can wear boys or girls.
Cleats. There's medal cleats and rubber cleats. You can tell by looking at the bottom of the shoe. most leagues don't allow you to wear the metal cleats.
No it's ok if your are the right age.
Metal cleats are only allowed in some leagues of high school softball. You will have to check with your specific league to determine this. A lot of league do not allow them because of the increased safety risks
no they are not.. Correct Answer is Yes they are in 16u and up.
Yes,but it depends on if you are in travel ball, tournament ball,or regular school ball
Most high school associations allow metal cleats but you need to check with your state association to confirm they allow there use.
Not metal! I don't know what type you REALLY use though. But not metal cleats.
Most do. The question is metal cleats or non metal. Metal are usually not allowed due to sliding into the opposing teams hands while trying to tag you out. You'll have to ask the coach and umpire. Typically 16u and up allow metal cleats.
No not in middle school. You can in most high school associations.
Metal is better because metal lasts longer and provides better traction. Safety is the only drawback. Fielders can get hurt when a runner slides into base with metal cleats. It will also do a lot of damage getting stepped on by someone wearing metal cleats. The only reason to use plastic is for artificial turf or because the rules forbid metal.
No. Softball is not safe because if you slide you can sprang your ankle the ball is to hard and what if you have metal cleats and you slide into the catcher that could damage the catchers leg.
No! Not until you get to high school, and even some high schools don't allow them. You have to be very careful and responsible when wearing them because they are dangerous and can seriously hurt someone
You can use them in some tournaments. The tournaments will post whether on not you can use metal cleats in their tournament. They may say you can't because they add another safety risk while playing.
for soccer you aren't allowed to have metal cleats
You can wear football cleats for softball/baseball. They will not perform as well though. Depending on your level of play this may not mean much...less than a tenth of a second in a 90' base path. You CAN NOT wear softball/baseball cleats in most other sports. Baseball cleats are normally flat and metal. They also have a "toe" cleat that works well in loose dirt. This toe cleat can cause injuries in sports like soccer, and is why they are normally banned. Most kids wear football or soccer cleats for all sports due to their interchangability and the cost of buying multiple cleats. Good football cleats often have interchangable cleats, for different field conditions.
Junior, senior and big league all allow metal cleats, minor and majors DO NOT allow metal cleats
they wear metal cleats instead to get more traction, grip and speed
Not until you get to high school. It is against the rules if you are younger than that to wear metal cleats. Even some high school level teams don't allow it. They are banned because if you step on someone when they are sliding, it hurts alot!
No, baseball cleats are metal and there are no metal cleats allowed in football since there is a strong possibility of your hand or someone elses hand being stepped on.
Rubber cleats are always safer than metal cleats because it is softer and has a less chance of injuring someone.
