You may be wondering what the difference is among a slowpitch softball bat, a fastpitch softball bat and a regular Baseball bat. The difference is in the technology of designing the bat. The length, weight and barrel diameter, among other features, are the main differences. Manufacturers have determined the size and weight that are optimal for hitting a slowpitch softball versus fastpitch, and have designed them accordingly.
A slow pitch softball places emphasis on how the ball is hit and not just on making contact. Driving the ball is highly essential to hitters and this will come from the speed of the bat.
it is for girls under the age of 9 and below ans they pich really slow to the hitter.
there is no difference for slowpitch to slowpitch but there is one for slowpitch to fastpitch, slowpitch balls are squishy, but fastpitch ball are hard or solid
The maximum speed in which a softball can come off the bat at in mph. (The bat's composition or structure is designed to limit the speed of the ball off the bat to 120mph)
YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES. You can bust your bat that way!!!!
Yes, a slowpich ball is heavier. That is why a slowpitch ball makes an arch and drop straight to the ground. since fastpitch balls come in faster the bats are lighter and made to swing faster.............any other questions go to www.youbetya.com
12 inch (same as 12u- ect.)
2. Slowpitch and Fastpitch
Construction and leather are the same (for respective models). Slowpitch gloves have bigger pockets to accommodate 12" softballs, however, slowpitch gloves generally are made for men. For Girls/Women's Fastpitch Softball, good gloves have slender fingerstalls to accommodate smaller finger and palms of girls and women.
No it is not. The only difference between softball and baseball. Is that there is a different ball for each sport.
Just like slowpitch just faster and with a wind up.
9 on the field in fastpitch and 10 in slowpitch
Slowpitch Softball is played using a high-arc pitching technique where the ball slowly falls into the strike-zone. Slowpitch speeds range from 25mph-35mph. Fastpitch Softball a windmill pitching technique is used that increases that speed of the pitch significantly and allows the pitcher to throw different kinds of pitches like drop, rise, curve, screw, and change. Fastpitch speed range from usually 50mph-65mph. The rules are basically the same, minus some variations in batting. In slow pitch if you foul off the third strike you are out. In fastpitch the strike is not called until you swing with no contact with the ball. Both require different equipment. EX:A fastpitch bat is different from a slowpitch bat. Slow Pitch...the coach pitches it and fast pitch....one of the teammates pitches it! :)
