Baseball is a over-handed pitch. Softball is a under-handed pitch
No it is not. The only difference between softball and baseball. Is that there is a different ball for each sport.
Fast pitch softball is pitched underhand and a baseball is pitched overhand.
Fast pitch and baseball are the same. A softball glove is different.
IN baseball players use a smaller ball that's 9 oz I forgot the the circumfrance was.While a softball is 60% bigger.
In softball, the ball is bigger. Baseball pitchers pitch the ball overhand while softball pitchers pitch underhand. Baseball is more of a boys sport and softball is generally more for girls.
Because a softball is heavier then a baseball.
there are many types of ways to play softball. there is slow pitch and fast pitch. tee ball and coach pitch but fast pitch is where they go in a hole wind up and pitch the ball to the hitter.
In terms of actual speed, a baseball pitch is much faster then a softball pitch. However, a softball pitcher throws from a shorter distance so it often looks just as fast if not faster then a baseball pitcher.
A baseball is smaller than a softball softball- first base looks different Pitch underhand Baseball- overhand
Although, there is no slow pitch in baseball, there is slow pitch and fast pitch in softball
Softball has girls playing. Baseball has boys playing. The softball is 2 as big as a baseball. Girl Pitchers pitch underarm boy pitchers pitch over hand.
A softball pitch is a lot harder to master than a baseball pitch because the motion is so different than regular throwing. However, once the pitcher has the motion down, the softball pitch is much easier on the body than a baseball pitch. This is because the softball pitch is a lot smoother than the violent baseball pitch. It cause a lot less shoulder injuries than a baseball pitch.
Softball pitchers pitch from 43 feet, while baseball pitchers pitch from 60.5 feet. Therefore, A 65 mph softball pitch is equivalent to a 91 mph baseball pitch. Each reaction time is approx .45 seconds.
No. Only in softball.
-There is always a possibility to get injured when pitching in either softball or baseball. But the pitch in softball (underhand) is more natural.
Put simply, baseball pitchers throw overhand, while softballers pitch underhand.
no the softball is much bigger and different. you use your index, middle, ring, and pinky(for support) and your thumb to pitch. softball and baseball has the nsame pitches, but different ways to do it. trust me I'm a softball player :) and a pitcher:) and a hitting slugger:)
Softball pitches have been measured at faster than the record baseball pitch of 104 mph.
There is a main difference between softball and baseball. First... obvious softball is played with a bigger ball. SEcond, is that the pitcher pitches underhand in softball and over hand in baseball. Many people or at least guys believe that baseball is better than softball, its more traditional and has been around longer. WEll i tell you what, softball is just as hard if not harder than "baseball". Softball goes alot quicker too. Ok, let me refraise my self, fast-pitch softball is at least as hard if harder. However, slo-pitch softball is not hard ot play while it does require skill, it does not require fast hand eye coordination when hitting the ball. Someone who goes from hitting the ball at 60 mph+ some to hitting the ball at 20 mph or less will prob miss the ball 8 out of 10 times for swinging too fast. Thus concluding that there are major yet minor differneces between softball and baseball, and which one is better is up to you... just depends on basically what sex you are, or what you basic opinion of the matter is. I am not trying ot be sexist, just statin the facts. ====================== The pitching for softball is always under hand. In baseball, the pitching is over hand. There is a fast pitch and a slow pitch in softball.
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).
Softball Pitch is underarm hand movement
softball was created because softball is a sport similar to baseball but for girls,and with a larger ball.and also an under hand pitch,not overhand
