i have been hit by a baseball and softball at 40 miles per hour and they hurt the same amout softballs are actually harder thenn baseballs but this is my opionion i have been playing softball since my freshman year and i use to play baseball when my brothers team needed people so i have been hit many times but softballs are worst.
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 easier to see and hit the softball
softball is played with bats , softballs , mits , bases , people , and a field. softball is a sport you can start at a very small age to get better so you can play travel or on a huge team for the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!
its changed from the amount of people who play it now than when they did in 1888, when softball was first invented. alot of the rules have also changed.
Yes! Some people think they aren't because they are called SOFTballs, but they definitely are!
A soft softball is made out of foam and never actually used in a real game of softball. If it is ever used, it is probably used in PE. or in a game that is just for fun. A hard softball is used in a real game of softball. A certified softball is a lime green sort of color and comes in a variety of sizes. The smallest size is 10 inches around, another is 11 inches around, and the biggest (and the one used for college softball and the Olympic team) is 12 inches around. Most of the time you would use the smaller sized softballs in a little league and a s the kids got older, the size of the ball gets bigger. The string that hold the ball together is red, just like a baseball. Softballs weigh about 175-178 grams. It's density is 15.5 to 16.5 per square inch.
Yes, softball is better than baseball. Think about it. In major league baseball do you see many women? No. In softball do you see very many men? Yes. Not as many as women, but you still do see men. I also think softball is better because if you are pitcher, you can ruin your arm by pitching in baseball. In softball, you cannot hurt your arm unless you are pitching wrong. Some people say "softball is for girls" because it is a sport for wimps. But that is not true. softballs just leave a bigger bruse!
A softball is bigger than a baseball because the field is smaller and doesn't have grass to slow the ball down. If softball players used baseballs, then the game would be considerably more dangerous. The balls would travel so fast people would be getting a lot more than they are now, causing more injuries.

I don't see how, or why you would want to. Most people use a softball.
