Farthest Baseball Throw: 445 feet 10 inches (135.89m) by Glen Gorbous of Canada August 1, 1957 while playing with the St. Louis Cardinals Triple A team.
Glen Gorbus turned professional in 1949 with the Brooklyn Dodger Baseball Organization and played with their minor system until he was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds of the National league in 1955. At the time, he was the only Canadian in the major leagues. He went on to play for the Philadelphia Phillies for two seasons before he returned to the minor leagues. During his professional baseball career, Glen Gorbous established the longest baseball throw in history when he threw a ball from outfield a distance of 445 feet 10 inches on August 1, 1957 while playing with the St. Louis Cardinals' Triple A team. His throw is recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records. The Longest Throw Story Glen Gorbous was born in Rosedale, Alberta on July 8, 1930, and became famous for his throwing ability. Gorbous was once paid two-hundred dollars for attempting to beat the world record for throwing. August 1, 1957, arrived and the fans were waiting with anticipation. Glen emerged onto the Omaha Ball ParkÕs Field with a hotdog, glove, and a root beer. He crammed the hotdog into his mouth, put his glove on, and slammed back his root beer. After two attempts to beat the record - held by Don Grate who threw the ball 445 feet 1 inch. Gorbous decided to give it one more try. He went outside the stadium and across the street before running back in to the string and releasing the ball high into the air. To his surprise, it landed 445 feet 10 inches away; Glen Gorbous set the new record.

Because a softball is heavier then a baseball.
a softbal is not easy to throw- you probably are not throwing a real softball.
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.
