WELL IF YOU WATCH SPORT SCIENCE THAN IT TELLS YOU THAT SOFTBALL IS HARDER THAN Baseball. JENNIE FINCH BROKE BULLET PROOF GLASS BUT THE BASEBALL JUST BOUNCED OFF THE GLASS.
The softball is not harder than a baseball it may be bigger but the softball is not that hard! i play softball and i know that a softball is not harder than a baseball because i got hit with a softball and it didn't hurt as much as the baseball.....and the people who were pitching pitched the exact same speed! so there u have it a baseball IS HARDER than a softball!!!!
Yes it is a fact that baseballs are harder than softballs because they are wound tighter. It may be a smaller ball but it is solid. softballs are rubber with string wrapped around it so they fly almost 200 ft less than a baseball will.
It is harder to hit a softball thrown from a perfesional softball player than it is to hit a baseball thrown from a major leager. The reason is the angle of the pitch (softball has more of an angle there for it is harder to hit) and the quickness/speed( softball mounds are closer to the plate and a softball, lets say from jenny finch, can be thrown at upwards of 68 mph; therefor it gets to the plate quiker than a 90 mph baseball pitch).
IF you think what I wrote isn't true then Google SPORTS SCIENCE BASEBALL VS. SOFTBALL. you will see (its a video) what I said is true,
Softball pitches because girls can throw more heat and baseballs are smaller.
baseball in my mind. Jrc
It said that a softball is harder to hit because of the force it comes in at is greater in the highest levels of softball then is baseball, also the underhand motion causes the ball to have an upward movement which is hard to master then the downward movement of a baseball.
no, its harder one of my favorite softball quotes~ "If softball were so easy, we'd call it baseball" also its harder to hoit something with only .250 seconds to react then baseball with .375 seconds to react proving softball is harder and cheering is fun and nice sooo....
a baseball is smaller so to me it would be harder to hit and it comes at you at like 90 mph and its not underhand so it would be way harder That's absolutely wrong. Softballs are bigger than the bat is so you have to get just the right angle on it when you hit it to get a solid hit. Baseballs however are smaller than the bat so when you hit it you have a 70% chance it will hit the ball at a good angle. Also baseballs are thrown down, but softballs are thrown level. it is a proven fact that it is easier to lower your bat than it is to raise it. As for the speed difference, baseball pitchers are 66.6 ft away (correct me if I'm wrong) softball pitchers are only 45 ft away. it has been tested that a 60 mph pitch in softball is equivalent to a 90mph pitch in baseball. so therefore hitting a softball is much harder.
Softball bats are designed to hit softballs. Hitting a baseball with a softball bat may damage the bat. Either hit a softball or get a baseball bat if you do not want to risk damaging your bat.
Even though I'm a baseball player, it is harder to hit it under hand when the pitches are thrown at equal reaction times. -When the softball is thrown under hand, its harder to adjust because the ball rises. Its more natural to move your arms down than to come up. Having experience in fast-pitch, rise ball usually gets the job done :]
Yes so you can hit the ball harder
Hi I play softball. It is used for playing the game. The pitcher uses it and the hitters hit it. The fielders field it. It was used so that girls can play baseball. Softball is much more difficult than Baseball. And the ball is no where near soft actually it is harder than a baseball. I hope i answered your question!
completely! a softball is less hard than a baseball but a baseball bat will not harm the softball in any way
So when the pitcher pitches it 2 u, u hit it w/the bat.
Well first of all rubber is chosen to be in a softball so that it can be harder to hit and safer if the ball was to hit you up side the head. So that's why rubber is chosen to be in a softball. ANSWER - it would not get damaged a lot
When you slap it your hand hurts and it doesn't go that far . When you hit the ball it is the oposite
