What is the difference between slow pitch softball and regular softball?

Slowpitch Softball is played using a high-arc pitching technique where the ball slowly falls into the strike-zone. Slowpitch speeds range from 25mph-35mph. Fastpitch Softball a windmill pitching technique is used that increases that speed of the pitch significantly and allows the pitcher to throw different kinds of pitches like drop, rise, curve, screw, and change. Fastpitch speed range from usually 50mph-65mph. The rules are basically the same, minus some variations in batting. In slow pitch if you foul off the third strike you are out. In fastpitch the strike is not called until you swing with no contact with the ball. Both require different equipment. EX:A fastpitch bat is different from a slowpitch bat. Slow Pitch...the coach pitches it and fast of the teammates pitches it! :)

In softball does stride affect your pitch?

yes it pretty much affects your pitching. For one, being closer to the plate gives an illusion that the ball is going faster than it really is. Using the power of the legs helps generate more force when pitching.Including a good stride will help on your pitching. it is important to increase it's flexibility to avoid unwanted injuries.
