softball will be back in the olympics in 2016?
Not anymore. Softball was played at the Olympics starting with the 1996 summer games. The IOC (International Olympic Committee) voted to drop both Softball and Baseball from the Olympic games starting in 2012. The Baseball and Softball Federations are trying to get their sports back into the Olympics starting in 2020.
saddly the year of 2008 they had the final fastpitch Olympics games for now there is a act going on to bring softball back into the Olympics.
Yes, it's played in the Olympics and in fact it's the only sport that doesn't have a boys division, it's only women softball. Unfortunately, a move was done to remove softball from the Olympic games starting in the 2012 Olympics. There have been efforts to help bring back softball.
softball and baseball. i think.
No, but the team is trying to get the sport back in to the 2016 Summer Olympics. They did not have enough votes for any baseball to be added as a sport or for a replacement sport
1931 when softball was created by maxwell jenkins
i would say a eleven inch due to the fact that it is lighter. but i am no mathmatician, just a lover of softball. HELP PUT SOFTBALL BACK IN THE OLYPMICS!!!!
Of course it should . Softball is an extremely popular sport and a lot people were striving for the olympics.They should also bring it back as it would promote physical activity a lot more then some other sports.
baseball pants have two back pockets and a belt loop, softball pants have one or no back pockets, and have a string inside to tighten the waist or no string. Softball pants do NOT have a belt loop
Trick question because softball wasn't invented until 1933
A back stop
Most people think it is not worthy to be an olympic sport and there are many people that are working on bringing it back
Not many boys play softball but it is not illegal. im 11 and i almost pitch bbetter softball than baseball. ( i play baseball). so if i could find a league that guys play softball, i would go there definitly. the reason most girls play softball because back ago, girls were not allowed to play baseball so they created softball. it was just a sexus thing to do.
Lacrosse back in the 1800's
To protect their faces in case of a bad pitch or if they foul the ball back up into their face.
There is no difference. Some rules may have changed but I am pretty sure that it is still the same. I have been playing softball for a while and it is still the same from when i played in 2012 and I still play.

In softball "squish the bug" when you are batting means to pick up your back heel but taking your toes and pivoting them 90 degrees.
You're using majority the muscles of the legs in most of the softball skills from running to fielding and even when you bat and throw. Core muscles are used in most of the softball skills as well. When throwing you use your back and triceps for batting you're using your forearms as well. For pitching your shoulders, legs, core and back are working
yes..."As a softball flies through the air, the air pushes back against it, resisting its motion and decreasing the distance the ball travels."...that is why
It was discovered in Chicago on thanksgiving day back in the year of 1887
Softball Catchers stay in a deep squat position for a long time. thus,it's important to strengthen thighs and core and have a flexible lower back. Squats, Single leg deadlift, Goodmornings, pullovers, Jump squats (when you have a good base)
