A softball pitcher is the girl in the circle on the mound in the center of the field. She is the girl who pitches the ball to the batters.
softball has a bigger ball, the oitcher pitches different, and the bases are closer.
Softball is probably harder. Despite the name, a softball is harder than a baseball, and heavier (therefore harder to hit very far). Because of this, the batter must run to the base quicker as the ball will be closer. Plus, in fastpitch softball, the pitches can be as fast (or faster)than baseball pitches.
An underarm throw in softball is basically a pitch. If you watch a fast pitch softball team, you will see that the pitcher pitches underhand.
Number of pitches
Softball pitches have been measured at faster than the record baseball pitch of 104 mph.

A strike in softball is when a pitcher pitches a softball to the batter [located in the batter box in front of the catcher] and the batter misses. When it is a strike, it is thrown in a particular area from the batter's armpits to the bottom of their knees.
The most basic pitch is the fastball. There is also the change-up, curveball, drop-ball, rise-ball, screwball, drop-curve, rise-curve, and knuckleball. So, I guess there are nine different softball pitches. Hope that helped!
Much like baseball pitching, softball pitching is used to throw a ball towards the batter. In baseball they throw overhand but in softball when your pitching you wind up, load, and throw underhand. There are more pitches possible in the softball pitching than baseball. All pitched possible to be thrown by a softball pitcher are screw ball, change-up, fastball, curve ball, rise ball, drop ball, and knuckle ball.
First off all it would depend on what the score of the game was and how many batters were faced. There is anywhere from 150-300 in a 7 inning softball game. It would depend on the level of play, the skills of the pitchers, and the umps of the game.
In softball there is a change-up, fastball, drop-ball, rise-ball, and screwball. Other variations can them stem from these basic pitches. Such as an off speed curve-ball, or the even nastier back door off speed curve ball. It is beneficial if pitches have a pitch they can throw very well if they are looking to being recruited of being a top-notch player.
Cat Osterman, an Olympic softball player, throws almost everything 62-63 mph. She's all about spin and all her pitches clock in right at the same speed.
