Bat, Feild, and run!
Well actually another name for baseball is hardball which are played by males. Softball is a name for what girls play. The name of the sport was actually named by the ball. Softball, a ball that is soft. They kept the sport simple.
Softball is actually very popular in the US, but it is not one of the main sports people play like soccer or basketball.
The rules aren't that different actually. Softball and baseball are nearly the same sport, with just a few minor differences.
In terms of softball statistics, the initials "SC" actually refer to the South Carolina State University team. They are generally referred to as "SC State".
There actually is no "mound" in softball. It's flat from the rubber to the plate. That's why it's also called the "pitching circle", which is the more correct term since there actually is no mound. That term just carried over from baseball.
Actually, a force out in Softball is, for example: If runners are on first and second, the force out is at third because the runner is forced to run to third base due to the runners behind him/her.
Softball fields are actually much smaller than baseball fields. This makes softball a faster paced game. It also makes it so that you have to have fast reflexes to play successfully in the infield.
They are the same thing!! "Why softball is better than softball?"
u actually have 2 pass the balls at all times'
You could technically, but a softball would not fit in a baseball glove. The slit in a baseball glove is a lot smaller than the opening in a softball catcher's mitt. It would be very hard to actually catch the ball with a baseball catcher's mitt
They named it softball because the game of softball was derived from Baseball. The baseball had a hard core whereas the softball has a soft core, so they named it softball. Although the ball is not softball the core of the ball is soft.
