Best Answer

Often times in a tournament, pool play is a set number of games before you get to "elimination play." Each team is guaranteed the same number of pool play games. For many tournaments your performance/record in pool play determines where you get bracketed for elimination play. Sometimes pool play has different time limit rules than bracket play. As a coach, it is certainly something you need to be aware of.

What is the difference between tournament 12U softball and Rec 12U Softball?

Travel is more competitive than rec. Rec season also consists of 1 game per every few days or once a week. Travel will compete in tournaments which will only last 1 to 2 days, but have up to 8 games in a day! 8 being probably the most. So to answer your question, the only difference would be the level of competition. BTW I ♥ TRAVEL SOFTBALL!

Difference between softball rules and baseball rules?

essentially the games and rules are the same with a few differences. some softball is played with ten fielders the 10th usually being called a short center and playing between where the center fielder stands and where the 2nd base is placed. there are obvious pitching rules (softball is underhand pitch and baseball has no rule requiring a pitch to be underhanded or overhanded) another difference is that baseball players at all levels from local 9 yr old leagues to the MLB are required to wear a hat and to wear it bill forward while in the field and softball players do not have to do this (in some organized softball only the pitcher is allowed to not wear a hat or visor but most of the time no one has to).
