Ball is hard on outside,but the core is soft,not allowing it to travel as far and fast as a Baseball,hence the name Softball.

What are the differences between softball and baseball?

There is a main difference between softball and baseball. First... obvious softball is played with a bigger ball. SEcond, is that the pitcher pitches underhand in softball and over hand in baseball. Many people or at least guys believe that baseball is better than softball, its more traditional and has been around longer. WEll i tell you what, softball is just as hard if not harder than "baseball". Softball goes alot quicker too. Ok, let me refraise my self, fast-pitch softball is at least as hard if harder. However, slo-pitch softball is not hard ot play while it does require skill, it does not require fast hand eye coordination when hitting the ball. Someone who goes from hitting the ball at 60 mph+ some to hitting the ball at 20 mph or less will prob miss the ball 8 out of 10 times for swinging too fast. Thus concluding that there are major yet minor differneces between softball and baseball, and which one is better is up to you... just depends on basically what sex you are, or what you basic opinion of the matter is. I am not trying ot be sexist, just statin the facts. ====================== The pitching for softball is always under hand. In baseball, the pitching is over hand. There is a fast pitch and a slow pitch in softball.

Can a softball be thrown faster then a baseball?

Yes,but it depends. If the softball pitcher throws faster then the baseball pitcher then yes. Yet though, it depends because the way the softball is pitched it is a little bit harder to throw then a baseball pitcher throws it. It all depends on the pitcher though if the ball goes faster or slower.
